Documentary Premiere October 3, 2020, Presented by Alternative Press!
The premiere of the FIRST EVER documentary on the band Anti-Flag. 27 years, 12 records, endless shows, hundreds of songs. This film follows the band from their beginning in 1993 all the way to present day, telling their story and focusing on the intersection of activism, music and art.
“It’s hard to sum up the last 27 years of Anti-Flag in an hour and a half. We started our band out of a passion for punk rock with the belief that punk music had the power to change people’s lives and have a positive impact on the world. With this documentary, we hope people will see that while life may not be as straight forward as that idealistic philosophy, it isn’t so far from the truth either. Regardless of what others take from this film, for us the experience of looking back on the history of Anti-Flag – sometimes good, sometimes bad and sometimes unbelievable – leaves us grateful to have had the opportunity to live a very rare and at times extraordinary life as part of this punk rock band.” – Justin Sane
