Featuring bands and known punk personalities such as Henry Rollins, Jello Biafra, Ian MacKaye, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Slickee Boys, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Half Japanese, Black Market Baby, Tru Fax, SOA, The Enzymes, The Insaniacs, and many more, PUNK THE CAPITAL is a monumental documentary about the rise of punk rock in the town that needed it most… Washington D.C.

This groundbreaking film about punk rock in Washington DC explores its uphill battles to take root in such an unlikely city. It takes us to the heart of this musical movement that not only redefined a genre but that influenced DIY culture and political engagement around the world.

USA, 2019, 90 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Paul Bishow and James Schneider

  • “...a love letter to the city's punk scene.”

    — Washington Post
  • "The best feature film on the subject..."

    — Libération (France)
  • “…a moving and affectionate corrective to punk’s traditionally bleak self-accounting."

    — The Culture Vulture (UK)
  • “The film puts to rest the silly notion that punk was nihilistic; here it feels like creative fun, with participants working with one another (it takes a village). Quite a feat.”

    — Kevin Mattson, Connor Study Professor of Contemporary History, author of We’re Not Here to Entertain
