Family, cult, gang, garage band; Girl Trouble has been perceived as all of these things. Strictly Sacred is the intensely personal account of the legendary group’s 30 years in the Northwest music scene. Hailing from the depressed city of Tacoma Washington, the band developed a unique brand of infectious garage dance music which they soon brought to Olympia, Seattle, and the other surrounding territories.

Isaac Olsen is self taught writer, director, photographer, editor, and animator from Tacoma, Washington. Performing the aforementioned roles, he has produced over 10 award winning shorts and three features: Quiet Shoes, a film noir comedy shot in Tacoma, Ich Hunger, a German expressionist art film shot in Flint, Michigan and Strictly Sacred, a documentary on the legendary northwest band Girl Trouble.  Isaac Olsen is a participant of Spaceworks Tacoma.

If you can’t make it to the Seattle International Film Festival, look forward to seeing the film at the Tacoma Film Festival later this year!
