Event description
'Punk the Capital' explores the Washington D.C. punk rock scene as a model for social and political engagement.

About this Event

Join us at The Union for a one-night-only screening of the documentary film Punk the Capital; Building a Sound Movement. The film explores the Washington D.C. punk scene during the transformative period spanning from 1976 to 1983, situating D.C. punk within the larger narratives of punk and rock n' roll. With a recently unearthed trove of Super-8 film, the film explores why the sounds and ideas from this highly influential music scene continue to inspire around the world. Featuring bands such as Bad Brains and Minor Threat it creates a portrait of a movement that not only redefined a genre but that became a model for social and political engagement.

Directed by: Paul Bishow, James Schneider (as James June Schneider)
