About:
A profile of the long-standing punk band Agnostic Front.

I previously wrote about the film DOC NYC’s program, saying:
The hardcore punk band Agnostic Front formed in 1980 and soon became synonymous with the New York punk scene. At its core were Vinnie Stigma and Roger Miret. Over 35 years later, the legendary guitarist, born and raised on Mott Street, and his Cuban-born vocalist bandmate are still going strong. Interweaving remarkable archival footage of the early days of Agnostic Front with present-day interviews and performances, Ian McFarland’s film captures the duo’s unmistakable personalities and their influential band’s enduring legacy.
