Punk Rock
"A unique exploration of the philosophy of punk, based on the ideas, beliefs and lives of the people that created the movement." The punk explosion of the late 70's and early 80's changed the face of music, art, fashion and more. But it didn't stop there. The originators of this movement were onto something really important. They had a unique view on an alternative way of operating in society (and often outside of it). Fired up with anger, frustration and hope, they got to work. And the consequences have been as powerful as they are challenging. This project set out to reconnect to the same people that were behind this philosophical shift, to see how they live their values today. To understand what they had learned, what their lasting legacy is, and what it might mean for all of us. The Truth of Revolution, Brother is the result of a year spent with some of the most influential figures in the global punk movement. The people spoken to have been musicians, artists, poets, politicians and provocateurs of all hues. They've included the brains behind bands like Crass, Minor Threat & Fugazi, Sugarcubes, Big Black, Subhumans, Poison Girls, The Pop Group & Mark Stewart and the Maffia, The Mb, The Adverts, The Membranes, Steve Ignorant's Slice of Life, Ghostigital, Oi Polloi, Mike Watt of Minutemen, Firehose & The Stooges, Rubella Ballet, Jn Gnarr (the Mayor of Reykjavk), and Einar rn Benediktsson (Sugarcubes and Minister for Culture); artists like Gee Vaucher, Jeffrey Lewis, Domo Arigateau and David King. Sound engineers and label managers like Steve Albini and Allison Schnackenberg as well as Gavin McInnes, a founder of global publishing phenomenon Vice Magazine.
