First-time filmmaker S.A. Crary shares a complex history of New York's art-punk scene through this compelling documentary. Weaving together a timeline from the late '70s/early '80s art-punk explosion, this film features such icons as Teenage Jesus & The Jerks bassist Jim Sclavunos, bandmate Lydia Lunch, DNA's Arto Lindsay, Glenn Branca, Sonic Youth and more.

From the Grammy-nominated Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Black Dice, Liars and Gogol Bordellos, exclusive interviews reveal a consistent hunger for invention through subversion. A depth of retrospection amongst the older generation puts the younger generation's musings in a context that will suprise even the most plugged-in scenester.
