It depends on how much you know, but it is quite fair to say, that although the anarcho punk scene was not the most commercially pleasing, it definitely meant most "business" of anyone of its counterpart punk waves! The standard conversation is about bands like crass, conflict, poison girls, Rubella Ballet, Flux of pink Indians, Rudimentary Peni, Dirt, Omega Tribe! ( this is not only a quick grouping, but a loose one) but what I want to consider is the idea of anarcho punk within the southwest of England!! How the politics of rural England perhaps influenced young minds differently to the urban perspective.
The other aim is to explore the idea of youth politics, how have the old school bands kept to or or changed their politics! And how does it influence their lives 3 decades on.
We have been in talks with Mark Wilson of The Mob and members of Virus! More TBC
Director - Seb Lewis
I am a third year film student at Falmouth university. I have a burning passion for documentary filmmaking, specifically forwarding the ideas of film for social action, awareness and change. In my personal life I also have a love for underground culture, specifically the punk scene which I have been pretty much married to for the last ten years. Why not merge the two passions?? I chose this project, not just because of its interesting subject matter, but for so much more. Without a doubt the anarcho punk scene has and will continue to save my life. This project is not just my contribution but also a thank you to a scene and a group of bands that have kept me smiling. Cheers me dears
Editor/ Sound designer - Jordan Lewis
Hey guys. Editing is my passion and I have had the opportunity to work on a number of great projects throughout my time at Falmouth University. I have worked on both documentary and narrative pieces, however documentary is the form in which I find I engage the most. In addition to all of this, Seb is also my twin brother, and I know first hand how much this film means to him, music is his life and that’s why this film needs to be made. But none of this will be possible without your help, please give what you can so we can make this happen. Much love, Jordan
Cinematographer - Ethan Ram
Hey. I have worked on a variety of films, both narrative and documentary form. I began making documentaries on social awareness last year, when I shot the film ‘Hedhadow’ with the same team. It was at this point I realised that documentary making was what I really wanted to focus on for my final year at university. I have always been fascinated by music docs and, combined with Seb’s enthusiasm and passion for this particular topic, I am very excited to be a part of it. I think this film has the potential to be very impactful, and any level of support would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
