In partnership with the Hollywood Theatre’s Feminist March programming, Books with Pictures is proud to co-present the singular post-apocalyptic phenomenon TANK GIRL, in 35mm!
Directed by Rachel Talalay and based on the comic book of the same name, 1995’s TANK GIRL stars Lori Petty as the titular Tank Girl, who – in the year 2033 amongst a desolate, drought-ravaged wasteland – rises up with Jet Girl (Naomi Watts) and the genetically-modified Rippers against the oppressive Water & Power corporation ruled by Kesslee (Malcolm McDowell). Also starring Ice-T, TANK GIRL was critically panned at its release and has since become a cult hit celebrated for its queer, anticorporate, and richly feminist themes – all set to a killer soundtrack featuring Bjork, Portishead, Devo, Joan Jett, L7, and more, assembled by Courtney Love herself!
