PUNK THE CAPITAL – Building a Sound Movement

Punkrockin räjähtävä esiinnousu törmäytti yhteen musiikin voiman, ystävyyden ja kirkkaat mielet Washingtonissa. Elokuva tutkii muutoksen aikakautta vuodesta 1976 vuoteen 1983, asettaen ilmiön punkin ja rockin tarinoiden laajempaan kehykseen.

Miksi aikakauden soundit ja ideat yhä vaikuttavat ja ispiroivat ympäri maailmaa? Dokumentti rakentaa muotokuvan liikehdinnästä, joka ei vain uudelleenmääritellyt musiikkigenreä, vaan myös loi mallin tee-se-itse-kulttuurille ja yhteiskunnalliselle ja poliittiselle osallistumiselle. Tarkentaen yhtyeisiin, kuten Bad Brains, Minor Threat ja The Slickee Boys ja henkilöihin kuten Henry Rollins, Ian MacKaye ja Cynthia Connolly, se vie meidät Washingtonin punk-liikkeen ytimeen.

Näytöksen jälkeen on tilaisuus keskustella Jeff Nelsonin (Minor Threatin jäsen, yksi Dischord Recordsin perustajista) ja ohjaaja James June Schneiderin kanssa.

• “Punk the Capital is a must see […] Who would have thought that mid-1970s Washington, a deathly boring city, where the streets emptied at 6pm, would in a decade become synonymous with the most vital American punk rock.” Libération (France)

• !Paul Bishow and James June Schneider”s fascinating documentary Punk The Capital successfully captures the zeitgeist that changed the world.” – Film Threat 

• ”It is deeply intelligent and satisfying, a moving and affectionate corrective to punk’s traditionally bleak self-accounting. It is rich in cumulative detail.” – Culture Vulture (UK)

“… a thrilling account of an important musical movement…” – The Village Voice

• “Washington finds itself seen under a new light: that of the youth who, suffocating by the omnipresence of politics, made a punk movement appear in the shadow of the Capitol.” – Les Inrockuptibles (France)
