At the Rock n Roll Camp for Girls, eight to 18-year olds find sanctuary in a sisterhood of bar chords. They form bands, write music (one girl is composing a 14-song cycle about her dog Pippi), and then perform in front of a live audience. Sounds sweet, right? Like you wish you could be a fly on the wall during the week-long retreat? You can. Girls Rock is a new documentary following four young ladies through a rock n roll chrysalis at the popular musical camp. Witness how something as simple as screaming through a microphone or wailing on an electric guitar fills each of them with a newfound sense of self. These little acts of rebellion might just help them escape high school unscathed. Rock out with the wee ones at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale) tonight at 6 p.m. This film plays through Sunday; call 954-760-9898, or visit www.fliff.com for tickets ($8 for general admission) and showtimes.
