No Wave Cinema 1: The Blank Generation
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
The first of two programmes devoted to the New York No Wave movement of 1976 to 1982, when a radically divergent group of filmmakers took up cameras in a DIY ethos borrowed from punk. This programme includes L.E.S., which presents the Lower East Side as a post-apocalyptic landscape, alongside a series of portraits of heroin casualties and a rare documentary on the legendary CBGBs, with early performances and interviews with The Ramones, The Dead Boys and Richard Hell & The Voidoids. Also featuring punk psychodrama She Had Her Gun All Ready, climaxing in a showdown on a Coney Island roller-coaster. Part of Glasgow Short Film Festival
