'Girls Rock!’ to start KAFM’s ReelTime indie film series
Check out a new alternative film series at an alternative venue.
ReelTime has its first showing of an independent film on Thursday, Jan. 15, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
See “Girls Rock!” a film about a five-day rock ’n’ roll camp for girls ages 8–18. The girls form bands, write songs and play a gig, all while dealing with emotional drama, self-confidence issues and troubled home lives. The camp is “an experiment in empowerment that will leave no one unchanged,” according to the Web site http://www.girlsrockmovie.com.
“Girls Rock!” focuses on four girls: a 15-year-old metal fan, a 17-year old who lives in a group home, an 8-year-old loner whose world revolves around her dog and a 7-year-old rebel with a rock attitude.
ReelTime will feature an independent, alternative film or documentary on the third Thursday of every month with show times at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., according to http://www.kafmradio.org.
Tickets are only be available at the door. Concessions will be sold.
