Painting Catfights

Painting Catfights is a short film where Artist and Filmmaker, Kirsten Johnson explores our fascination with girl-on-girl violence. Funny, provocative and thoughtful, this surprising film explores why Johnson is obsessed enough to make large scale oil paintings on the theme even though she finds the concept a dated, cheap and easy device aimed at the lowest common denominator.


“What the hell is it about catfights? It’s not like I spent family movie nights watching sleazy 70s soft porn. Why am I so obsessed?


A visually energetic exploration of a guilty brand of feminism and the act of creation.
