Óstöðvandi Dúkkulísur
Hljómsveitin Dúkkulísur hefur starfað nær óslitið frá árinu 1982 og er því elsta starfandi kvennahljómsveit á Íslandi. Í heimildarmyndinni Konur rokka er saga hljómsveitarinnar rifjuð upp og talað við samferðafólk hennar.

Myndin er einnig ferðasaga. Ferðalag vinskapar og tóna, ferðalag á æskuslóðir á Egilsstöðum og til Færeyja þar sem þær taka upp lagið Nú er komið miklu meira en nóg. Dúkkulísur taka lagið á Skógardeginum mikla í Atlavík, en þar hófst ævintýrið á unglingsárunum í þann mund sem þær stöllur unnu Músíktilraunir 15-17 ára gamlar. Einnig spila þær á Seyðisfirði 19. júní, eða á 99 ára afmæli kosningarréttar kvenna á Íslandi en sá dagur er þeim einstaklega kær.

En tekst þeim að klára hið erfiða ferli sem lagið er? Er þetta kannski síðasta lag sveitarinnar? Er komið nóg af Dúkkulísum, þessum vinskap, þessu ferðalagi?

Myndin er, auk þess að vera fræðandi, hvatning til allra kvenna um að láta drauma sína rætast og berjast fyrir jafnri stöðu kynjanna í hvaða umhverfi og áhvaða tíma sem er.

Dúkkulísur Unstoppable (English):

The band Dúkkulísur (English: Paper Dolls) has played together since 1982 and therefore they are the oldest operating all-female band in Iceland. In this documentary, Women Rock, we tell their story.

The film is also a story of their travels on many levels. A story of friendship and music, a story of getting back in touch with their roots in the small town of Egilsstaðir in Eastern Iceland, and the adventure of travelling to the Faroe Islands where they record a brand new song Nú er komið miklu meira en nóg (English: Enough is Enough) in a local studio. Dúkkulísur perform at the Big Forrest Day in Atlavík where their adventure began around the time they won the Teen Music Competition (Músiktilraunir) when they were 15-17 years old. They also perform in the small Eastern town of Seyðisfjörður on June 19 commemorating 99 years since women gained the right to vote in Iceland. This is a day of special significance for the band.

The effort to create this original song is fraught with difficulty; will they complete it? Is this perhaps the band’s last song? Has there been enough of Dúkkulísur, this friendship, this journey?

The film is enlightening, inspiring and a challenge to all women to let their dreams take flight and continue their struggle for universal equal rights.
