Lydia Lunch is a fighter and she has been waging an endless battle for almost 40 years. Her colossal body of work, her incredible journey and her major role in the explosion of the underground New York scene in the 1980’s are dissected here through the prism of different philosophical themes, the very same that gave her the strength to subvert patriarchal power and denounce violence against women across the world. In the lens of Beth B and through testimonies by artists and collaborators (Donita Sparks, Thurston Moore, Richard Kern, Kembra Pfahler, …), Lydia Lunch stands out as an explosive agent of disruption and one of the fiercest and most influential defendants of women’s rights. She is not about to lay down her arms.
