Positive Force: 'More Than A Witness' Film Screening

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Can punk's rhetoric of radical change be turned into concrete action bridging diverse communities? "More Than A Witness," a feature length documentary on punk activist collective Positive Force DC, shows this can be done. Using archival footage and new interviews with participants like Kathleen Hanna, Ian MacKaye, and Penny Rimbaud, this film brings to life three decades of punk politics in action. Filmmaker Robin Bell and Positive Force co-founder Mark Andersen will lead a post-screening discussion on how this history can fuel movements today.
