Doc'n Roll: Age of Rage: The Australian Punk Revolution + zoom director Q&A

When the first wave of punk broke Australian shores in the 1970s, it was met with a fierce embrace that continues to reverberate today. Adopted and adapted with fearsome intensity by disenfranchised, pre-globalisation Australian kids as a challenge to the isolation and cultural vacuity of mainstream Australia, punk Down Under was a DIY counterculture – a profound, visceral critique of late 20th-century capitalism. Australian punk chose values and agendas that for many have become lifelong, and its revolution full of rage, angst and defiance has evolved. AGE OF RAGE shows that while some still stand at the edges of society, others have re-engaged, bringing their punk values with them.
