Punk The Capital

Building a Sound Movement

Dir. Paul Bishow, James Schneide USA 90 min

2019 Passion RIver Films

When punk rock exploded in D.C. in the late 1970s, it was a mighty convergence of powerful music, inter-generational friendships, and clear minds. PUNK THE CAPITOL captures that transformative period, situating DC punk and DC harDCore within the larger narratives of rock ‘n’ roll. Featuring recently unearthed Super-8 film of bands like Bad Brains and interviews with legends like Henry Rollins and Ian MacKaye, Punk the Capital explores why the sounds and ideas from this influential music scene continue to inspire around the world.
