Published Jun 20, 2016In the backyards of South Central and East Los Angeles, California, a punk rock community thrives on forming emotional bonds through music. Filmmakers took a look at this DIY scene in new documentary Los Punks: We Are All We Have, and the film now has itself a screening north of the border.
Presented in collaboration with Vans Off The Wall, the film's Canadian premiere will take place at Montreal's Phi Centre on June 27. Director Angela Boatwright will be on hand for a question and answer session after the screening, followed by a performance from a three-band bill of Age of Fear (who are in the film), Parasytes and FaZe.
Los Punks: We Are All We Have follows a group of young adults finding their way through the backyard punk scene, looking at "bands, fans, production, marketing, and security interwoven into a sub-culture of thrash and noise and pits."
Tickets to the evening premiere on June 27 are free of charge, and can be secured here. Tickets to further screenings from June 28 to 30 will cost $9.50 for students and seniors, and $11.75 for others. You can also find those here.
