This documentary tells the long-overdue tale of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. No Wave Cinema— from the late 1970s through the mid 1980s when the city was a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs—was a movement that saw these directors craft daring works that would go on to influence independent film as we know it today. Featuring acclaimed directors Jim Jarmusch and John Waters, actor- writer-director Steve Buscemi, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, hip- hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth & photographer Richard Kern. Fittingly, the soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, Television, Richard Hell, and Sonic Youth.
