FULL SYNOPSIS

Via their documentary Girls Rock!, co-directors [[Performer~P515671~Arne Johnson~arnejohnson]] and [[Performer~P515672~Shane King~shaneking]] transport viewers to a most unusual summer destination: Rock 'n' Roll Camp, where young women from ages 8 to 18 each spend one week learning to choose a band, play a rock instrument, and write a song. The central lesson behind the week's activities involves a complete liberation from social conformity and from traditionally accepted behavioral rules and gender stereotyping. More significantly, such real-life rock legends as [[Performer~P448637~Sleater-Kinney~sleaterkinney]] and [[Performer~P322933~Carrie Brownstein~carriebrownstein]] participate in the camp, encouraging the young girls to fully accept their own individuality, eccentricities, and interpersonal differences, while they offer instruction on such areas as anger management and self-defense. The documentary -- like each week of the camp itself -- concludes with a massive rock concert, performed by the bands in front of over 700 people. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
