The Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley is hosting a 'Women In Punk' double bill on Sunday 15 June. First of the two films is Lukas Moodysson's recent release We Are The Best!, a story of three young misfits in 80s Stockholm who find their voice through forming a punk band, followed by Sini Anderson's The Punk Singer, an ace documentary centred on Bikini Kill/Le Tigre/The Julie Ruin's Kathleen Hanna and the inception of the riot grrrl movement.

An introductory talk will be given by lecturer, musician and feminist punk author Helen Reddington. The event will also be rounded off with live performances from The Exhausts and DOE - check here for more info and tickets.
