Dogwoof has acquired UK rights to The Punk Singer.

Sini Anderson’s documentary about the Bikini Kill and Le Tigre front woman Kathleen Hanna is set for a UK theatrical release in May.

The deal was brokered by Oli Harbottle, head of distribution at Dogwoof, and Salma Abdalla, managing director for Autlook Films, on behalf of international sales agent Films Transit.

Harbottle commented: “We’ve very much looking forward to releasing The Punk Singer alongside Kathleen Hanna’s return to the UK with The Julie Ruin tour in late May - the film’s documenting of this remarkable woman and the Riot Grrrl scene will no doubt go on to inspire a whole new audience in addition to the existing fanbase.”

“Dogwoof is the perfect match, they are experienced with pulsating music films and at the same time, they know how to market the political layer of the film,” added Abdalla.

The Punk Singer receives its Scottish premiere at Glasgow Film Festival.
