The Lowell Film Collaborative will be screening the powerful 2007 documentary film Girls Rock! in commemoration of Lowell Women’s Week in March 2009. We couldn’t be more thrilled! The Lowell National Historical Park will be partnering with us once again for this event — our sincere thanks to the LNHP!
Critics Love Girls Rock!
“It’s the best film of the new year, a funny, wise and inspiring ode to spirits set free. And it rocks.”
– ST Louis Post-Dispatch
“Revolutionary, heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud funny. Absolutely not to be missed.”
– Seattle Magazine
“The act of picking up a guitar and making some noise becomes a life-changing experience in “Girls Rock!,” an irresistible new documentary from filmmakers Arne Johnson and Shane King…every girl between the ages of 8 and 18 should be required to check it out.”
– Mary Houlihan, Chicago Sun-Times
“I don’t know if I have ever seen a greater collection of girls in one sitting then I did when I went to see ‘Girls Rock!’ Even more importantly, I can’t remember the last time I saw a film, or television show for that matter, and was inspired and energized by the females on the screen. Surprisingly, this comes from the hands of a couple of men — Arne Johnson and Shane King. Yet it doesn’t really matter, because they understand their subject perfectly.”
– Monika Bartyzel, Cinematical
“Bring your daughters!”
– Moria Macdonald, Seattle Times
