Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits

F Rated Film
Friday 27th April 2018 - Thursday 3rd May 2018

A riveting film about the world’s first all-girl punk band, who formed in London in 1976. Contemporaries of The Clash and The Sex Pistols, The Slits are the pioneering godmothers of punk. Fronted by the irrepressible and iconoclastic Ari Up, the band has inspired generations of artists, from Sonic Youth to Sleater Kinney.

Drawing on stunning personal archives and including interviews with key surviving band members, Here to be Heard tells the story of a group that literally changed the cultural landscape of Britain in the patriarchal 1970s with their furious feminist battle cry.

Friday night’s film screening will be preceded by a performance by Suck My Culture, Plymouth’s very own Feminist punk band.

Dir. William Badgley, UK/US, 2017, 86 mins. With. Viv Albertine, Tessa Pollitt, Paloma McLardy.
