Time Out Magazine’s list of “10 Nonfiction Knockouts” to see at this year’s DOC NYC Film Festival.

“Fascinating insight into the influential Washington DC hardcore punk scene.” –TeamRock

Washingtonian Magazine declared the film “a must-see.”

“Salad Days is a sweat-drenched, scream-sung ode to D.I.Y empowerment…” –Mass Appeal

NME named it one of “12 Music Documentaries To Get Excited About In 2015.”

“Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)” is a documentary film that examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows—without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry’s subsequent implosion). Thirty years later, DC’s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction.
