Beginning this Thursday, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will launch the Global Punk Film Series, occurring from April 25–July 11. The series will feature seven films that center on the global influence of punk and will be held in conjunction with the exhibition Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: Punk Graphics, 1976–1986.
The first film in the series, airing on April 25 at 6:30 pm, is Nadie es Innocente (1986), directed by Sarah Minter. The film embodies Mexico City’s subculture in the 1980s and follows the youth collective Mierdas Punks as they “eke out their own lives on the periphery of society.” The screening will be preceded by a short film directed by Minter and Gregorio Rocha titled Sábado de Mierda (1988).
Other films in the series include Jubilee (1978), Young Soul Rebels (1991), Bikutsi Water Blues (1988), Arada (2018), Kutya éju dala (The Dog’s Night Song) (1983), and Wild Zero (1999). A full schedule of screenings can be found here.
