Vulveeta

Directed by Maria Breaux2022USA93 mins

The riot grrrl movement is back—or maybe it never went away? New-ager and former frontwoman of the 90s band Vulveeta, Grrrilda Beausoleil is getting the band back together in time for her 50th birthday and hires a film crew to document the whole thing. But a lot has changed in the 20 years since she walked out on her bandmates: San Francisco’s dot com boom has edged art and music out of the city, and not everyone in the band is ready to trust Grrrilda to navigate it. Somewhat expectedly, the unresolved tensions between the band members themselves threaten to end their triumphant comeback before it begins.

Set in San Francisco and made with a crowd-funded budget, this completely improvised mockumentary is directed by and stars Maria Breaux, whose short film Lucha won the Audience Award at Frameline33. In this tribute to folks who grew up in the punk, riot grrrl, and indie music scenes, Breaux, StormMiguel Florez, J Aguilar, Dakota Billops-Breaux, and Sarah Korda make up the cast with cameos from punk and local icons Lynn Breedlove, Allison Wolfe, Hilary Ronen, and Per Sia in this spirited local comedy.
