Punk in Africa

Czech Republic, South Africa
Director: Keith Jones, Deon Maas
Afrikaans-English-Portugese version with Czech and English subtitles / 2011 / 82 min.

Punk in Africa is the story of the multi-racial punk movement within the recent political and social upheavals experienced in three southern African countries: South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. In these societies, punk subculture responded radically to the intense political struggles and economic hardship taking place, and even to civil war. Punk in Africa traces this untold story from its roots in the underground rock music scene of early 1970s Johannesburg and the first multi-racial punk bands formed in the wake of the Soweto Uprising, through to the militant anti-apartheid hardcore and post-punk bands of the 1980s and up to the rise of the celebratory African-inspired ska bands which sprang up from Cape Town to Maputo in the democratic era of the 1990s.
