Punk the Capital is both a documentary film exploration of the birth of DC Punk (circa 1976 to 1983) and a long term engagement with Punk Rock and its role as cultural catalyst. We continue to work in various capacities with other documentary projects, D.C. non-profit groups, and punk related archival projects.
