Movie Info

Geek Girls is the first feature-length documentary exploring the hidden half of fan culture: nerdy women. Although geeky communities have recently risen to prominence as major cultural contributors, very little attention has been directed towards the women who live and work with nerd culture on a daily basis. 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.


Critic Reviews for Geek Girls

All Critics (2)

The film seeks to comfort the afflicted geek more than afflict the comfortable geek. There is social value in that. But one still wishes the film dived deeper.

... [director Gina] Hara perfectly captures the push-and-pull of what it means to be a geek: being deeply attracted to a very niche piece of culture, while feeling compelled to reject that identity in mainstream circles.
