LOS PUNKS: WE ARE ALL WE HAVE ON MAY 26
Joined by New York punk band The Casualties and Los Angeles backyard favorites Age of Fear and South Central Riot Squad, for the ultimate celebration of punk Angela Boatwright introduces her film, Los Punks: We Are All We Have. House of Vans will host DIY workshops where guests can stud, patch, bleach and dye just about everything under the sun. Each screening will also offer a Q&A with the attending musicians and directors so guests can interact with the creatives behind the film.
Angela Boatwright’s profound 2016 Slamdance feature Los Punks: We Are All We Have tells the story of the backyard punk community in South Central and East Los Angeles. Punk rock is thriving in these communities, and the film documents a group of predominantly Latino teens and young adults who cobble together a tight-knit family interwoven into a subculture of thrash, noise and pits. "I lived in New York City for half of my life and after four years in Los Angeles it’s an honor for me to present Los Punks to all of my East Coast friends,” expressed Boatwright. “Juxtapoz Magazine called Los Punks my “love letter to So-Cal punk” and it’s absolutely true. I can’t wait for New York to find out what’s happening here in L.A.!"
