Last Fast RideDir. Lilly Scourtis Ayers. 86 min. 2011 US
An intense look at the life of a punk rock star who died before her time. If you were part of any punk scene in the early nineties, be it in San Francisco, Boston, or Providence, you knew someone like Marian Anderson: driven, talented, sexy, and troubled. Please join us for this astounding documentary that shines a light on a musician who burned bright but all too briefly.

Singer, model, dominatrix, prostitute, bisexual, drug addict, insane, intense, beautiful, loyal, genuine, selfless, tough, sweet, violent – all words used to describe Marian Anderson. Last Fast Ride: The Life, Love and Death of a Punk Goddess is a compelling portrait of a tragic life. Marian Anderson, beautiful, talented and loved, was plagued by sexual abuse, mental illness and self-destruction. Narrated by punk legend and actor Henry Rollins, the film covers Marian’s idyllic youth, her tormented adolescence, and her dangerous adult life.
