VCAM Screening Room 001, Haverford College

Tour Without End is artist Laura Parnes’ invitation to enter the colorful and conscientious world of American independent rock musicians of the ’90’s to the present. These musicians sought (and still seek) to fuse musical expression with political action, formal experimentation, and other dialectically rigorous endeavors. The resulting film is strikingly unique: a hybridized documentary, narrative comedy, which utilizes the subjects of the film as non-actors playing themselves in an exploration of identity, representation, and the arts. It features Kate Valk (The Wooster Group), Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance), Johanna Fateman (Le Tigre), Kathleen Hanna (Julie Ruin, Bikini Kill), among others.

A conversation with Laura Parnes will follow the screening.


Organized by Visual Studies faculty Vicky Funari, John Muse, and Sally Berger. Made possible by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities’ Tuttle Creative Residencies Program and Leaves of Grass Visiting Artist Program; Bryn Mawr Film Institute; the Distinguished Visitors Program; the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship’s Social Justice Film Series; VCAM; and the Visual Studies Program at Haverford College.
