Lydia Lunch: The War is Never Over is a deep dive into the life and work of the fearless musician and performer Lydia Lunch that echoes the urgent, aggressive, unapologetic attitude that Lunch inhabits. Lunch hit the late 1970s New York City downtown scene with the band Teenage Jesus And The Jerks, a central pillar of the No Wave music movement. Since then, she has forged paths in the underground film scene as a director, actor, lecturer and women's empowerment coach, feminist writer and spoken word performer. Directed by boundary-breaking filmmaker Beth B (Two Small Bodies), whose collaborations with Lunch span more than four decades, Lydia Lunch: The War is Never Over presents the artist's electric body of work with archival footage, vintage photographs and interviews with Lunch and longtime collaborators. Actively performing to expose the patriarchy, sexual abuse, cycle of violence, and corporate greed, Lunch continues to tirelessly bring her passionate artistry to the stage-and now to the screen.
