What is happening in San Francisco right now might be a snapshot of what is happening in America. The tech money that has come in here, and the way that San Francisco is handling it, is screwing a lot of poor people really hard and in a really bad way. It is ruining people’s lives. We are losing a really important part of San Francisco culture. I feel outnumbered as someone who came up here when I was 16, and as a working class person. I can’t afford to shop at these shops, or eat at these restaurants. If I didn’t have rent control, God forbid I should lose it, I couldn’t afford to stay here. None of my life would be possible… All I can do is write a song about it.
“Buried In The Mix” explores the early San Francisco punk music scene: its bands, its characters, their lives, loves, and losses. This feature length documentary retraces life’s tumultuous path with some of the individuals who built a vibrant punk culture, characterized by the unbridled creativity for which San Francisco is known.
This compelling film comprises historic video and iconic imagery alongside contemporary interview and performance footage by such punk pioneers as Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys, Guantanamo School of Medicine), Penelope Houston and Greg Ingraham (Avengers), Ted Falconi (Flipper), Mia Simmans (Frightwig), Fritz Fox (Mutants), Bob Clic (The Lewd), author Patrick O’Neil (Gun, Needle, Spoon), photographers Ruby Ray and Bobby Castro, and many other artists.
“Buried In The Mix” combines these elements to create a collage of stories that reveal the San Francisco punk movement in its raw, raging glory, highlighting the inspired rebellion of early punk, rebellion that is needed today more than ever.
Currently in the final stages of production, “Buried In The Mix” will screen at select venues in late 2015 with a broader release targeted for 2016. “Buried in the Mix” is produced by Starling Cinema.
