(Robin Bell | 70 min.) Philadelphia Premiere

Punk activist collective Positive Force DC emerged in 1985, rising from the creative, politically-charged ferment of DC punk’s Revolution Summer.

This feature-length film skillfully mixes rare archival footage (including electrifying live performances from Fugazi, Bikini Kill, Anti-Flag, and more) with new interviews from key PF activists. Covering a span of 30 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.
