Punk-Doku online: Punk's not dead


(Google Direktpunksnotdead, via)

„Punk's not dead“ ist eine dreistündige (!) Dokumentation über die Anfänge des Punk bis heute. Premiere hatte sie 2006 in Cannes und hat auf Festivals mehrere Preise abgeräumt. Die DVD erscheint in UK im August 2008, bei uns schaut man mal wieder in die Röhre. Oder in dieses Internetz, von dem so viele reden.

Punk’s Not Dead is more than just a tribute documentary. It takes you on an era-by-era journey that puts punk rock’s non-conformist reputation under the knife. Officially sanctioned by the bands in the film who donated personal photos, fliers and home videos, Punk’s Not Dead follows the evolution of punk music from its anarchic roots, to its use as a corporate marketing tool and acceptance into popular culture, to its reinvention in today’s underground scene.

Director Susan Dynner’s first-hand experience of Washington DC’s punk scene in the Eighties and her continued love of punk music spurred the making of this self-financed, independent documentary true to the D.I.Y. spirit of punk culture. Punk’s Not Dead combines intelligent, insightful commentary with live performances, behind-the-scenes anecdotes and a killer soundtrack.
