A few years back I was lucky enough to get a screener of Itty Bitty Titty Committee, a film by the director of But I’m A Cheerleader, and the producers of D.E.B.S. (Also two great teen films that deal with queer issues.) Now the film is out on DVD and I recommend everyone give it a viewing. From the release:
This latest fabulous movie from Jamie Babbit is a dynamic, romantic, frequently funny and politically astute movie with a smart script, rockin’ soundtrack and terrific ensemble cast that includes sexy young Melonie Diaz as the new dyke on the block who falls in with a great gang of Feminist troublemakers called Clits in Action (CiA), and then falls in love with leader of the pack, Nicole Vicius. Unfortunately, Nicole has a girlfriend – Melanie Mayron – and, as they say, drama ensues. With Carly Pope, Daniela Sea, Guinevere Turner, Deak Evgenikos, Jenny Shimizu and Lauren Mollica.Shot on Super 8 and Super 16 mm in true DIY style, the film’s major bonus is its soundtrack, which includes Heavens to Betsy, Sleater-Kinney, Team Dresch, The Need, Slumber Party, Bikini Kill, Peaches and Le Tigre.
