MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE
I WAS A TEENAGE SERIAL KILLER
Sarah Jacobson’s punk-spirited DIY films from the 1990s combine B-movie aesthetics and riot grrrl feminism, standing as a testament to the vision, determination, and raw talent of the Queen of Underground Cinema. MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE, Jacobson’s only feature film, is a vibrant and vital antidote to every phonyHollywood teen picture, bringing lo-fi realness to thecoming-of-age genre. The 27-minute short, I WAS A TEENAGE SERIAL KILLER, is SLACKER meets Valerie Solanas, as a 19-year-old woman responds to catcalls, condescension,and bad sex the only way she knows how: murder. Taking on every major function from production throughdistribution, Sarah Jacobson proved herself as a shitkicker and rulebreaker, finding fans in filmmakers Allison Anders (GAS, FOOD LODGING) and Tamra Davis (CROSSROADS), as well as Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth.
