Down & Dirty: American D.I.Y. Restored

down and dirty

Monday 21 – Wednesday 30 August, 2023

The punk and ‘no wave’ movements of the late 1970s cut a noisy if brief swathe through the pretensions of the increasingly corporatised contemporary music scene. Emerging from the physical and cultural decay of downtown NYC, the punk scene combined an aggressive rejection of canonical and popular taste with an enthusiastic D.I.Y. approach – producing works that defied categorisation, defiled the audience and despised convention by exploring controversial subjects and offering more radical ways of seeing gender, sexuality and race on screen.

Kicking off the season with Variety on Monday 21 August, plus a remote Q&A with director Bette Gordon on Thursday 24 August following our 8.10pm screening. It’ll be followed by Kamikaze Hearts on Saturday 26 & Tuesday 29 August, and Salvation! on Sunday 27 & Wednesday 30 August.
