Director Sini Anderson’s documentary The Punk Singer dives into the present and momentum-building past life of Riot Grrrr-famed and Bikini Kill leader Kathleen Hanna. More info and media goodness after the jump.

Feature film synopsis can be read as follows:

“Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as the reluctant but never shy voice of the riot grrrl movement. She became one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons, a cultural lightning rod. Her critics wished she would just shut-up, and her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage* and intimate interviews with Hanna, THE PUNK SINGER takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.”
