Still from Afro-Punk

Afro-Punk

James Spooner’s audacious rock documentary follows four black people from different cities who are immersed in overwhelmingly white punk scenes. Featuring performances by Bad Brains and Cipher and exclusive interviews with Fishbone, Dead Kennedys, and Candiria, the film gives a voice to black punk fans, who are often excluded from both white and black music communities. (2004, dir. James Spooner, 75 min.)

A Q&A with Tisa Bryant, Ernest Hardy, and director James Spooner follows the screening.
