LYDIA LUNCH: THE WAR IS NEVER OVER + Intro
Featuring an introduction before the film with Lydia Lunch herself and MQFF Program Director and film critic Cerise Howard.
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.
Her decades long career is the subject of The War is Never Over, a feature length documentary by Beth B –is the first career-spanning documentary retrospective of Lydia Lunch’s confrontational, acerbic and always electric artistry. As New York City’s preeminent No Wave icon from the late ’70s, Lunch has forged a lifetime of music and spoken word performance devoted to the utter right of any woman to indulge, seek pleasure, and to say “f-you!” as loud as any man. In this time of endless attacks on women this is a rallying cry to acknowledge the only thing that is going to bring us together – ART…as the universal salve to all of our traumas.
