Black History Month

Film: nicht öffentlich

"Afro-punk" von James Spooner
Documentary, 66 Min., English

 

"Afro-punk": A 66-minute documentary, explores race identity within the punk scene. More than your everyday, Behind the Music or typical "Black History Month" documentary, this film tackles the hard questions, such as issues of loneliness, exile, inter-racial dating and black power. We follow the lives of four people who have dedicated themselves to the punk rock lifestyle. They find themselves in conflicting situations, living the dual life of a person of color in a mostly white community.


James Spooner
is an American tattoo artist from New York, living in Los Angeles. He is best known for his seminal documentary film Afro-Punk (2003), exploring the African American experience in the punk music scene. After its release, he founded the annual Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn, New York, working with it from 2005 through 2008, and subsequently parting due to philosophical differences with its direction.Spooner later wrote and directed White Lies Black Sheep (2007), a fictional feature set within the punk world that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. He also wrote the forward for the book anthology "White Riot" which examines where race, identity and punk music intersect.
