Covering a quarter century, this documentary traces the history of the Washington, DC?based punk-activist collective, Positive Force DC, from its Regan-era origins to the modern day. The feature-length film skillfully mixes rare, archival footage with current interviews of key Positive Force activists such as cofounder Mark Andersen and musicians Ian MacKaye, Ted Leo, and Allison Wolfe. Exploring the organization?s DIY tactics in addressing issues of homelessness, racism, sexism, corporate globalization, and war, the documentary also sheds light on the group?s struggles with the FBI as well as its conflicting internal visions. Featuring never-before-seen footage of legendary bands such as Seven Seconds, Fugazi, the Make-Up, Jawbox, and more, this film will captivate punk and indie rock fans and provide inspiration to those seeking to make a difference in their community.
