Kathleen Hanna Is the Voice of an Alien Puppet in a New Short Film

by Elizabeth Thompson


Kahleen Hanna can now add "actress" to an already fearless resume that includes fronting seminal feminist punk band Bikini Kill as well as Le Tigre and the Julie Ruin. Hanna lends her distinct voice to the new animated short, Myrna the Monster, produced by MTV Other and directed by Ian Samules, about an alien named Myrna (Hanna) who is abducted from her home on the moon by astronauts and taken to L.A. The 14-minute film debuted at Sundance -- but will also be shown at SXSW next month -- and follows Myrna as she tries to make sense of life in a big city, dating, and generally feeling like an outsider. If you just thought of yourself, well, same. Watch the tender trailer above and a clip below via Flavorwire.
