A wild and impactful portrait of a punk rock priestess ” Eléonore Colin, Telerama

Featuring a Q&A after the film with Lydia Lunch herself.

LYDIA LUNCH is passionate, confrontational and bold. Whether attacking the patriarchy and their pornographic war mongering, turning the sexual into the political or whispering a love song to the broken hearted, her fierce energy and rapid fire delivery lend testament to her warrior nature.

Queen of No Wave, muse of The Cinema of Transgression, writer, musician, poet, spoken word artist and photographer, she has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up. She performs in a variety of mediums, is a rabid collaborator and continues to release new music as well as re-issuing classic material from her vast catalogue of written and musical works.

Since 2019 she has been hosting The Lydian Spin a weekly podcast (which featured Joseph on episode 84), as well as dozens of musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers in conversation.

Her decades long career is the subject of The War is Never Over, a feature length documentary by Beth B –which is presently touring the UK, Europe and the USA throughout 2021 and into the spring of 2022.
