Pulled from archival interviews and rare ﬁrst-person stories, this 75-minute ﬁlm details the punk scene from the inside—including how the business of punk got done—and how it gave voice to a community of misﬁts who gave voice to the world. PUNK: Crashing into Being celebrates not just the legends but also the artists who inspired them, and the documentarians who captured their raw essence and energy for us to experience here and now.
This LaschArchives ﬁlm is produced and edited by Beth Lasch, with contributions from Callie Lasch, Amy Lasch, Jon Sadlier, Wayne Sawyer, and the late Giorgio Gomelsky. PUNK premiered this May at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) as part of the exhibition Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976–1986.
