Punk Rock not Vigilantes!

NALIP-SA in collaboration with San Anto Cultural Arts is proud to announce the documentary screening of WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN at 7PM on Sunday March 26, 2006 at Café Revolution, 527 El Paso St. This screening is part of the NALIP-SA’s 2006 San Antonio Film Series. Director Tim Irwin be in attendance and will sit for a question and answer session with the audience after the screening.

WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN is a feature length documentary chronicling this ground-breaking, early 80’s punk rock band from their humble beginnings in the harbor town of San Pedro, CA to their untimely demise when lead singer and guitarist D. Boon was killed in a van accident in December of 1985.

Told by those who were there (Henry Rollins/Black Flag; J Mascis/Dinosaur Jr.; Richard Hell/Voidoids; Thurston Moore/Sonic Youth and many others), WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN weaves together footage from over fifty newly shot interviews with archival interviews and live performances to capture the dynamic energy and do-it-yourself spirit of these punk rock pioneers.

The screening will open with “Tripa Love”, a short film by San Antonio Filmmaker Ian Tyler Ibarra.

The evening’s presentation will also include a musical performance by Piñata Protest. Piñata Protest is the Westside of SA’s latest export, combining accordion sounds with blistering punk rock and folk melodias. This young power trio is forging new grounds, musically and culturally with their hybrid musical style.

DJ Dirty Styles will DJ, spinning the SA classics.

There will also be a sale of original monoprints created through San Anto Cultural Arts’ weekly monoprint workshops.

The "San Antonio Film Series" is a year-long program of screenings and workshops that will foster independent film in San Antonio. Through celebrating and including filmmakers and audiences of all backgrounds, NALIP will promote the authentic, pan-ethnic diversity that is the real jewel of independent filmmaking. This programming is made possible by The San Antonio Film Commission, The City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs and NALAC.
