Followed by a Q & A with director Gwen Trutnau
“Pulling from the genres of horror and science fiction, Gwen works tirelessly to build intricate sets and costumes while continually referencing the subcultures of metal and punk. Changing the typical constructs of these genres by placing female characters in positions of power and control, her works are inherently political. And always Fucking Kick-Ass!” -Christina Battle, Incite Magazine
