DC Punk-Activist Film screening and director talk: Positive Force: More Than A Witness: 30 Years of Punk Politics and Activism

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at New Nothing Cinema (see times)
This feature-length documentary skillfully mixes rare archival footage--including electrifying live performances from iconic bands Fugazi, Bikini Kill, Rites of Spring, Nation of Ulysses, Anti-Flag, and more--with new interviews of Positive Force activists including co-founder Mark Andersen (co-author of Dance of Days, co-director of We Are Family) and Jenny Toomey (Simple Machines, Future of Music Coalition) as well as long-time supporters/inspirations such as Ian MacKaye, Jello Biafra, Dave Grohl, Ted Leo, Riot Grrrl co-founders Kathleen Hanna and Allison Wolfe, Penny Rimbaud of Crass, and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte—just a few of the 75 people interviewed for the film.

"A fascinating and inspirational new documentary by Robin Bell that chronicles the symbiotic relationship between D.C. punk and do-gooderism....Seamlessly situating a musical moment within the larger cultural context of Reaganomics, the rise of riot grrrl feminism, pacifist protest and other issues," - Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

Created by independent filmmaker Robin Bell, More Than A Witness tells the story of celebrated DC punk activist collective, Positive Force DC, over its 30 years of punk politics in action.
