Hurry, hurry step this way, the strangest sights on the island!
Knife throwers, burlesque dancers, lady boxers, trapeze
performers, beauty queens, and 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 the female spectacle.
