"If Black Panthers and Girl Scouts had a baby, it would be the Rebel Bells." - Pilar Rodriguez

REBEL BELLS is a documentary short film about an all-girls radical collective located in the Calumet region connecting southeast side Chicago, Illinois, and East Chicago in northwest Indiana. The Calumet region is an economically precarious, environmentally-polluted industrial corridor in the U.S. Midwest.

The Rebel Bells was started in 2016 by three mothers who are leaders in the environmental justice movements in their respective communities. The goal of the Rebel Bells collective is to teach young girls about social justice and community activism in an empowered and safe environment. Though they receive guidance from the moms that are involved in the group, the girls take ownership over the curriculum and typically lead the meetings and activities of the group.
