In Search of Margo-Go

In Search of Margo-go, starring Kathleen Hanna, Jill Reiter & Iraya Robles, has been described as “a playful synth-punk romp re-envisioning early ‘80s NYC club culture as an acid-hued comic book, equal parts Liquid Sky and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” Reiter, editing from the original16mm & Super 8 shot in 1994, as well as “new” footage filmed on an old studio camera, animation by Katie Bush, & music by composer LK Naps, finished this “lost” film in 2015. This time capsule from the under-documented ‘90s queerpunk/riot grrrl underground in SF & NYC looks back on queer influences from the early, arty & neon pre-hardcore punk scenes, into the androgyny-laced ‘80s new wave world of Reiter's teenage years.
