San Francisco Punk Film Festival | SF Main Library

The San Francisco History Center’s S.F. Punk Archive presents a four-part film series that takes you from the chaos of contemporaneous footage to recent documentaries striving to illuminate a hidden history. Free and open to the public.

Ten short years after the ultimately disenchanting Summer of Love, San Francisco harbored a new counterculture united around unrepressed outrage and the rejection of hypocrisy. Punk erupted from the city’s dark cellars and dingy underage clubs but was snubbed by local press and radio. Self-made zines, handbills, Super-8 film, vinyl and video became the instruments for recording and disseminating this explosive movement.
