Afro-Punk

The subjects of James Spooner's 2003 video are black kids who've embraced the punk subculture; the unresolved contradictions of race in American life are its underlying theme. A compilation of interviews with dozens of fans and musicians, this video at times devolves into a melange of undigested data, but at its best it's an appealing tapestry of “alternative” personalities: a peace-loving “vegan anarchist,” a kid who likes the “fuck corporations” message of punk, a woman who feels her Mohawk haircut has “cultural validity” because she has “Mohawk blood.” 75 min.
