Showtimes and location

Film description

Washington, D.C. was one of the most transformative cities in modern music thanks to the inter-generational convergence of punk rock which brought forth legendary bands like Bad Brains and Minor Threat. Punk the Capital covers the key years from 1976 to 1983, bringing them vividly to life with a recently unearthed trove of Super8 film and first hand testimony from all the key players like Ian Mackaye, Henry Rollins and HR. Together they created a highly influential underground movement and an unstoppable cultural force specific to its unique home city.
