Punk rock is thriving in the backyards of South Central and East Los Angeles. A cobbled-together family of Hispanic teens and young adults comprise the scene: bands, fans, production, marketing, and security interwoven into a sub-culture of thrash and noise and pits. The sense of belonging is palpable; emotional bonds fostered among good families and those broken, poverty and wealth, adolescence and maturity, with the music emanating a magnetic chorus for all to sing together. ‘Los Punks: We Are All We Have” is a documentary feature film honestly and sincerely portraying this vibrant ‘DIY’ community.

“The best film of Slamdance 2016 that I’ve seen is Angela Boatwright’s ‘Los Punks: We Are All We Have'” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“…the energy and good vibes on display will make “Los Punks” a pleasure for anyone who doesn’t bridle at fast/loud music.”

-Denis Harvey, Variety

“Los Punks from director Angela Boatwright is a gorgeously made (particularly the photography which is shockingly crisp and naturalistic) proto-tone poem about what this scene means to the troubled you it draws in.”

-Joshua Brunstin, Criterion Cast
