Director: Sandi Tan. Documentary about the production, theft, and recovery of Singapore's first all-girl punk-underground movie. Screenplay: Sandi Tan.

Twitter Capsule: A good-yarn documentary that is also visually, sonically, and rhythmically memorable. Announces new themes as it unfolds.

VOR:   A good doc about a film and its peculiar fates. An even better one about young women, ambition, and complicated relations (including formal ones).
