Synopsis

This collection of short films represents a hint of the tectonic shift in the underground film world in connection with the punk rock “movement.” Restored from original negatives, it showcases the reasonably well-known alongside the extremely rare, from music shorts to impressionistic documentary.

Our take

A vivid snapshot of a fertile moment in American underground culture, this anthology of rare/classic punk films is shot through with a DIY ethos and collective spirit of experimentation. From chronicles of punk gigs (DEVO! The Residents!), to surrealist music videos: the spirit of anarchy presides!
