Event Details

In celebration of the origins of DIY CULTURE in San Francisco, and as a special tribute to the lost-but-legendary MABUHAY GARDENS (just around the corner on Broadway,) we present a program of PUNK ROCK FILMS. In the late 1970s, while punk bands and artists were saying “FUCK YOU!” To prevailing aesthetics and politics, the Mabuhay was the center of the universe for West Coast punk, and many punk filmmakers rose to the occasion to document the scene. Though many punk filmmakers turned to Super 8, VHS, collage and found footage in the tradition of punk ingenuity, tonight’s program focuses on the 16mm films that captured the gritty clubs, bands, and defiant spirit of our beloved San Francisco. Included in the program are Mindy Bagdon’s LOUDER FASTER SHORTER (featuring THE AVENGERS and THE MUTANTS!), Liz Keim’s IN THE RED, alongside films by DANNY PLOTNICK, GRETA SNIDER, RICHARD GAIKOWSKI and many more! PLUS: Book launch for JACK YAGHUBIAN’s recently-released punk-era CONVENIENCE!!
