In honor of A Band Called Death, five more films about almost forgotten musicians
Shining a light on an often undiscussed part of punk music and culture, Afro-Punk (2003) explores race identity through the personal stories of fans and musicians alike. Featuring commentary from members of bands like Bad Brains, TV On the Radio and Dead Kennedys, the film builds on the collective experience of individuals involved in music scenes across the country.
1) From the Back of the Room
Another film documenting an often under- and mis-represented musical demographic, From the Back of the Room (2011) looks at women's place in punk rock. Digging deeper than just the Riot Grrrl movement, this film also talks to both fans and musicians about the treatment women that receive within the context of a male-centric, often aggressive art form.
