ID-07 Special Screenings

The Blank Generation / Ivan Kral, Amos Poe

An invaluable document of a long-lost era, it sets the style for the Punk Documentary – raw, sloppily spliced, unsynched footage of bands, with sound recorded by cassette.The effect is total disorientation and CBGBs performances by Talking Heads, Blondie, Ramones,Tuff Darts, Patty Smith and many other New York Bands fill up this frantic, crowd-pleasing film
