Botinada: The origin of punk in Brazil
From the 70’s until the world famous festival “O Começo do fim do mundo” (The beginning of the end of the world) in 82, all the history is told by the ones who lived it. The tapes, the expensive imported Lps, the first bands, the gangs, the fights, a close look at the hard reality of the kids in the suburbs (shanty towns) of a country ruled by a military dictatorship. More than 20 years later, all their impressions and memories are revealed.
Expect footage from: As Mercenarias, Olho Seco, Inocentes, Colera, Lixomania, Ratos the Porao and many more!
PM us if you need the address!
