Michael Lucid's documentary short (made when he was a senior in high school) chronicles the "weird" girls at his high school and people's reactions to them. Really great stuff.

Christian Storm from VICE pretty much sums this up perfectly:
"Earlier this week, a video called "Dirty Girls" went viral on YouTube—and not for the reasons you'd expect, given the title. The documentary video, originally shot in 1996 by filmmaker (and then high school senior) Michael Lucid, was released in 2000 and chronicles a group of outcasts, refered to by their tormentors as the "Dirty Girls," who pride themselves on riot grrrl ethos, being different, and just not giving a fuck. The video focuses on the two leaders of the Dirty Girls, sisters Amber and Harper, who speak clearly and eloquently (as eloquently as an eighth grader can be expected to) about their convictions, while girls in sunglasses and jean jackets talk smack about them behind their backs. Not only is the documentary a perfect time capsule for people who went to high school in the 90s, it also perfectly captures two strong, independent young people speaking their minds and doing their own thing."
