Noise & Resistance

Punk has grown up and is now called DIY. A globally interconnected scene, built on autonomy and solidarity. Whether they are squatters in Barcelona, antifascists in Moscow, queer inhabitants of Berlin‘s self-governed trailer parks, Dutch unionists or ageing activists of England‘s CRASS collective - they can all be brought down to one common denominator: their protest and music as their means and tools to express it. Consequently, two filmmakers set off on a journey through subcultural Europe. In an authentic and complex contemporary document, they tell about members of the DIY scene in different countries - about the protagonists‘ motivations, their shared aspirations and ideas of utopia and how they - maneuvering between reality and idealism - create a parallel universe that functions under its own rules.
