So Which Band Is Your Boyfriend In?

Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sometimes we leave conversations about feminism with a bitter taste in our mouths, aware that nothing we said has broken through that wall of misconceptions and shallowness that is so characteristic of our male-dominated society. But not this time.

Suzi Harrison’s beautifully crafted documentary “So, Which Band Is Your Boyfriend In?” delivers its message of feminism and inclusion in an elegant and thought-provoking way, starting a conversation about what it really, truly means to be a female or non-binary member of the punk scene.

The film explores topics such as motherhood, discrimination and sexism in music, highlighting the struggles that artists continue to face in a scene that prides itself on being inclusive.

Yet, there’s a striking, infecting positivity in how each artist looks at the future, a future they shape with every new performance, encouraging the growth of a diverse, multifaceted and truly equal music reality.

Unwrapping itself as a round conversation between a huge number of musicians and people involved in punk music (Nu Pogodi, Muncie Girls, Petrol Girls and Shit Present to name a few), this documentary follows the artists’ first steps, their role models and their own personal stories, leaving us with an invaluable testimony of their work and passion for music.

If ever a documentary had the power to make us run back to our guitars, grab those drumsticks or even start that band we always wanted to put together, this is it! Go make some noise!
