Product Description

Punk activist collective Positive Force emerged in 1985, rising from the ashes of Revolution Summer. This feature-length film by Robin Bell skillfully mixes rare archival footage (including electrifying live performances from Fugazi, Bikini Kill, Nation of Ulysses, Anti-Flag, and more) with new interviews with key PF activists like co-founder Mark Andersen and supporters such as Ian MacKaye, Ted Leo, and Riot Grrrl co-founder Allison Wolfe. Covering a span of 25 years, More Than A Witness documents PF's Reagan-era origins, the creation of its communal house, FBI harassment, and the rise of a vibrant underground that burst into the mainstream amidst controversy over both the means and the ends of the movement. In the best punk fashion, PF volunteers have applied creative DIY tactics and radical critiques to issues of homelessness, racism, corporate globalization, sexism, and war while struggling to constructively address conflicting dynamics and visions within the group itself.

Review

A fascinating and inspirational new documentary by Robin Bell that chronicles the symbiotic relationship between D.C. punk and do-gooderism. --Washington Post

Positive Force: More Than a Witness clarifies that what was an active moment in both local music and politics was the nudge many young people needed to reexamine their own lives --Washington City Paper

It may not be as widely known or celebrated as the music itself, but the Positive Force story is inextricably linked with D.C. punk --Washington Post Express

I was Living in the DC area, when the First Edition of the Book Dance Of Days came out. When they had the Release Party, Mark Anderson showed a Couple hours of video Clips of Bands from the Scene/Book. I HOPE some of this GREAT footage makes it into this DVD release. It was a Night I'll Never forget!
Positive Force is an Amazing Organization Working to make the World Just Better, BUT not some Multi-million dollar infa-structured "Charity" This is a Real Grassroots organization. Putting their Money where their Mouths are! That Night's Party was to Benefit a "Sex Workers" Activist group, to protect those Forced to eek out the lives on the Dangerous streets of DC. To give a Voice, to some, WAY outside of the Rock scenes. Not to Build up some Promotional War chest, for the Book.
If The Book Dance Of Days is any Indication, This Film should be A Great Document of an Important Scene, NOT just Musical, or Political, But HUMAN!
I'm giving it "only" 4 stars out of Reasonable Anticipation of Seeing this Film in the Future!
I Hope it gets a Theatrical Release too. Seeing those images (again) on the Big Screen would be Even more Thrilling, next to being there yourself!
