DIRTY GIRLS (2000)

"THAT'S THE GIRL WHO DIDN'T TAKE A SHOWER SINCE KURT COBAIN DIED"




'Dirty Girls' is a short documentary directed in 1996 by Michael Lucid and edited in 2000. The story is about a group of 13 year old girls, mocked and excluded by their classmates. Indeed, the other students nicknamed them 'dirty girls' due to their bad hygiene and behavior. The documentary is an invitation to enter the 'ecosystem' that these girls, considered by many to be outcasts, have created for themselves. It also allowed them to share their own truth by giving them a platform to express themselves.

'Dirty Girls' is 18-minute long lesson in acceptance and tolerance at an age when teenagers are trying to find their own identity. It is a brutal reminder that in our society, individuality is often seen as something bad.
