AFROPUNK is more than the annual festival, it is a MOVEMENT. AP represents "the other black experience", basically Black People who don't typically watch BET. It all started with the Documentary.
AFROPUNK - "The Rock and Roll Nigger Experience" was the original title for the movie before it was changed to what we know as today: AFROPUNK - The Documentary, a 66 minute documentary explores race identify within the punk scene. More than your everyday "Behind the Music" or typical "Black History month "documentary this film tackles hard questions, covering issues such as exile, loneliness, interracial dating and black power. We follow the lives of four people who have dedicated themselves to the punk rock lifestyles. They find themselves in conflicting situations, living the dual life of a person of color in a mostly white community. AFROPUNK - The Documentary features performances by Bad Brains, Tamar Kali, Cipher, and Ten Grand. It also contains exclusive interviews by members of Fishbone, 247- spyz, Dead Kennedys, Candiria, Orange 9mm and TV on the Radio to name a few.

The Film is now available on AP's Facebook page and here it is:

AFROPUNK - The Documentary, as well as the whole movement, has inspired me greatly, as an artist and just as an individual. I can not wait for this year's festival just to see how the community has, and will continue to, grow.
