German filmmaker Barbara Teufel directs Die Ritterinnen (Gallant Girls), based on her own experience in Berlin during the '80s. The film is a mixture of archive footage, interviews, and dramatization starring Jana Straulino as Bonnie. On Labor Day in 1987, a group of radical girls in the Kruezberg district of West Berlin started a violent protest of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Conference. The story of the group's anarchist actions are linked to Bonnie's personal story of coming out as a lesbian. Gallant Girls was shown at the 2003 San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
