At Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp, girls ranging in age from 8 to 18 are taught that it’s OK to sweat like a pig, scream like a banshee, wail on their instruments with complete and utter abandon, and that “it is 100% okay to be exactly who you are.”

United by a love of rock, girls from all over the US come together for one week to select a band, an instrument (even one they may have never played before), and write, produce and perform a song. In between, indie rock chicks such as Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater Kinney) mentor the girls and teach lessons of empowerment ranging from self-defence to anger management. And then it’s time to step up as the bands take to the stage to perform in front of over 700 people. At the core of this inspirational film are three campers: Laura, a Korean adoptee obsessed by death metal; Misty, a 17 year old emerging from a life of meth addiction, homelessness and gang activity; and Amelia, an eight-year-old who writes experimental rock songs about her dog Pipi.

What happens to each of the girls as they are given a temporary reprieve from being sexualised, analysed and pressured to conform is truly moving and revolutionary.
