Part archival project, part documentary film, and part portrait of a national conversation of rebellion, rock ā€™nā€™ roll, and sociopolitical participation, Punk the Capital: Building a Sound Movement [in Washington D.C.] explores 1976-1983 D.C. through recently unearthed Super-8 film and commentary from the people who lived it: Henry Rollins, S.O.A., Bad Brains, the Slickee Boys, and Black Market Baby. A conversation with filmmaker James June Schneider, Jeff Nelson (Dischord Records/Minor Threat), Tesco Vee of the Meatmen, and Andy Wendler of Necros will follow a screening of the documentary.
