The Melbourne premiere of the acclaimed documentary
'Distorted: Reflections on early Sydney punk'
Directed by Des Devlin
This documentary charts the growth and development of the punk scene in the first city in Australia where it appeared with a particular emphasis on the famed Grand Hotel at Railway Square. Featuring interviews with those who were there including the musicians, activists, artists, squatters and anarcha-feminists and actual never-before-seen footage of live bands. 'Distorted: Reflections on early Sydney punk' firmly locates the punk scene in Sydney in its social and political context in what some have claimed as the last true white rebellion in Australia.
This will be the first time it is to be shown in Melbourne before going on to wider release next year.
WHEN : 7PM, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2013
