We Still Got Power: The Films of Dave Markey

Series Site

"David Markey has sustained a truly independent career in the shadow of Hollywood and against the backdrop of corporate America for over three decades. As a filmmaker, photographer and musician, Markey brings together underground music, experimental cinema and contemporary culture in a direct and insightful way. His body of work is also historically significant, representing a unique record of the punk scene in Southern California throughout the 1980’s and into the 1990’s. His indefatigable DIY aesthetic continues to drive him, as well as inspire a new generation of filmmakers, musicians and artists, and Spectacle is proud to present a selection of his films, from his earliest shorts to the 2008 festival favorite The Reinactors." —Spectacle
