SVA’s Laura Parnes Directs Video for Le Tigre’s New Pro-Hillary Clinton Song

MFA Photography, Video and Related Media faculty member Laura Parnes recently directed a video (watch below) for feminist electroclash trio Le Tigre’s new pro-Hillary Clinton song “I’m With Her,” the group’s first new music in over 10 years.

From The New York Times: “Le Tigre, the post-punk, synthesizer-driven, politically minded band formed in 1998 by the riot grrrl firebrand Kathleen Hanna, has regrouped (with Johanna Fateman and JD Samson) after a decade for an urgent last-minute election message: ‘I’m With Her.’ Yes, that’s a Hillary Clinton slogan, and the song smilingly and bluntly stumps for the ‘pantsuit-wearing herstorical first-timer.’ As the synthesizers pump and blip, the women sing praise for Mrs. Clinton and sharp digs at Donald J. Trump. The video features rallies, protests, cats, dogs and Le Tigre’s members declaiming and dancing—in pantsuits.”
