MON, April 11, 2011. MOMZ HOT ROCKS (90m) at 8pm. Kate Perotti’s jubilant film documents the trials and tribulations of small-time rock bands composed entirely of women who happen to be moms. Momz Hot Rocks shows how this particular generation of women (now in their 40s) are mediating the identities of “mom” and “rocker” and shifting them at the same time. It’s best viewed while keeping in mind that male musicians have historically enjoyed the freedom of being as punk-rock as they want to be without the question of whether they’ve had a child being relevant. The documentary brings to light some juicy feminist questions about autonomy, female archetypes, generational differences and deeper cultural values and assumptions.
