Shot in 1996 by the then high-school student Michael Lucid on a handheld camera in Santa Monica, California, Dirty Girls was released and screened around Los Angeles in 2000 before going viral on the interwebs in 2013. The film focuses on a group of teens dubbed ‘dirty girls’ by their scathing and imperious peers for their unbridled rejection of social norms  especially their intentionally unkempt, grunge-influenced aesthetic.

Identifying as part of the Riot Grrrl feminist punk movement of the 1990s, the girls share their perspective on capitalism, feminism and rape culture in their self-published zine, mostly to the mockery and derision of their classmates. A microcosm of the high-school social experience familiar to many Americans, Lucid’s film is also a window into the early days of third-wave feminism, before many of the ideas that the ‘dirty girls’ embraced gained traction in mainstream culture.
