HER Docs recommends films at Krakow Film Festival

Peaches, who is a performer, provoker and a sassy lady, does not slow down in the sixth decade of her life. To the contrary, her tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of her album ‘Teaches of Peaches’ was an explosion of creativity. For the directors of "Teaches of Peaches" Judy Landkammer and Philipp Fussenegger it was also an opportunity to find out more about this rebellious artist, an icon of feminism and queer culture.
