Reel Women in Film: Bad Reputation

Online Program

Streams Daily July 19 – 23, 2021
Q&A July 22, 2021 at 7:30pm

Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Joan Jett and her cohort of hard-rock legends rip it up on stage.

Even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. Experience what made Jett an unconventional and groundbreaking artist in this compelling documentary then join a conversation where we’ll explore how her story sheds light on the music world’s role in the second-wave feminist movement and American culture in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Museum’s Reel Women in Film series highlights the works of women in front of or behind the camera.

Enjoy access to a virtual film screening of Bad Reputation, and connect with the Bullock Museum for a LIVE conversation about the film on Thursday, July 22 at 7:30 p.m. (CST). A virtual screening ticket will give you access to view the film for 72 hours between July 19 and 23. This film program is shown in conjunction with the exhibition GUITAR: The Instrument that Rocked the World, which exposes visitors to the science, sound, history, and pop culture behind the world’s favorite instrument.
