Hurry, hurry step this way, the strangest sights on the island! Knife-throwers, burlesque dancers, lady boxers, trapeze performers, beauty queens, female contortionists. Remixing public-domain archival footage of Coney Island and early vaudeville performers from the Prelinger and American Memory Archives, Freak Girls is a tribute, both playful and haunting, to some of the women who pioneered the art of female spectacle.
