VFF at Violet Crown - Geek Girls

Geek Girls is the first feature-length documentary exploring the hidden half of fan culture: nerdy women.

Filmmaker Gina Hara addresses this oversight by delving into a world of professional gamers, cute dresses, fake names, and death threats; she follows her subjects through the exhilaration of newfound community and the ennui of ostracization while also exploring her own struggles with her geek identity.
