    First Los Angeles screening of She Said Boom!


    She Said Boom: the Story of Fifth Column is a feature length documentary film about the multi-disciplinary post-punk group Fifth Column, a group of women from Toronto who formed in 1981 and ended up collaborating for almost twelve years. Fifth Column formed with the intention of reimagining what it meant to be in “a band”, and as self-proclaimed outsiders, decided that they would create a malleable space within which to collaborate with other artists and outsiders, whether they were musicians, photographers, or filmmakers, all of these things became one. As the project continued over its 12 year run, this inclusivity spread through cult filmmaking, and self publication of magazines to strongly represent the Queer movement. This story explores how these women went on to kick-start the Do-It-Yourself art making generation and inspire other groups of young women and men all over the world for the following generations, such as the Riot Grrrl and Queercore movements. Their commitment to working outside a capitalist structure made it impossible for them to claim their due as musicians and artists, despite having garnered worldwide notoriety for their work. It also explores the contributions of this group of young people to the core of Canada’s rich subculture, and investigates the reasons these cultures often slip through the cracks of our history and art-heritage.
