Cinema On Demand: Una Banda de Chicas (15*)

Chronic Youth 2020

Marilinia Giménez’s debut documentary takes us on a sonically charged exploration of all-women bands in Argentina’s male dominated music industry.

Personal interviews are interspersed with diverse live performances as we travel through sub-cultures which are reshaping the scene.

From dingy basements thumping with reggaeton and punk rock to bustling protests about reproductive rights, radical politics take centre-stage in this inspiring portrait of female bands rebelling against the patriarchy.


Warped Moves: A VJ Experience 

Come and experience a hypnotic audio-visual live streamed performance by the Young Barbican Programmers on Sat 3 Oct at 8pm.

Featuring archive dance clips centred around the 20th century and weaved with a selection of curated songs inspired by themes from Una Banda De Chicas. We explore live-cinema by bringing footage out of the traditional cinema context and onto the virtual dance floor.
