I love Dirty Girls

"Dirty Girls" is an outstanding short documentary made by a teenager 1996 about a group of teenage riot grrrls at a Los Angeles high school. These girls were named the "dirty girls" by their peers due to their grunge appearance and status as outcasts within their high school.

In this film, people from various cliques around school talk about their "dirty girls" in a negative light. Despite the way they are treated by their peers, the dirty girls distribute a zine around school to share what they believe in. It's quite interesting to hear what the "dirty girls" have to say about the way they are perceived by the people at school who judge them.

This documentary is incredibly well-made, and gives an inside look into what it was like to be a highschool outcast in the late 90s.

Shot in 1996 and edited in 2000, this is a short documentary about a group of 13-year-old riot grrrls in Los Angeles who were socially ostracized at their school by their peers and upperclassmen. Everyone in the schoolyard held strong opinions about these so-called "dirty girls," and meanwhile the "dirty girls" themselves aimed to get their message across by distributing their zine across campus. Directed by Michael Lucid. Music: "Batmobile" by Liz Phair.
