NIGHTCLUBBING: GREATEST HITS
Introduced by directors Emily Armstrong and Pat Ivers
From 1975 to 1980, directors Emily Armstrong and Pat Ivers documented the vibrant, often violent, and always entertaining scene inside CBGB's, the Mudd Club, Hurrah, Danceteria, and other New York clubs. Through these raw videotapes, they captured live many now-legendary punk, new wave, no-wave, and hardcore performances. Featured are Iggy Pop, John Cale, the Cramps, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, and Minneapolis' own Suburbs. 1975-1980, U.S., video, 72 minutes.
Directed by Lisa Ganser
Twin Cities filmmaker Lisa Ganser's newest work continues in the vein of her 1999 documentary Homocore Minneapolis. In Janestown, the DIY punk scene, an important media outlet for both youth and queer culture, goes head-to-head with mainstream pop music and marketing tactics. 2000, U.S., video, 10 minutes.
