The documentary ANARCHY IN THE UK: The New Underground Cinema will be premiering at the Rio Cinemas Plaza on May 6th as part of Esto Es Para Esto's screen nights. Follow the link for more info:

The new documentary by director Jett Hollywood (Ziggy Stardusts filmmaker son from Mars) examines today's rise of the UK's underground cinema movement that involves a mish-mash of broken bones, surrealism, and punk DIY hysteria. The film relives the era (2010-2016) of the 'Misrule Cinema Movement' which exploded after the government abolished the UK's Film Council and the blanket frustration manifested its self at the London student tuition fee riots and with the Occupy protests.
This period of social revolution and unrest gave birth to a new wave of pent-up creative energy and determined filmmakers, along with Independent cinema groups who started shaking the film industries rigid cage by building their own cinemas or staging guerrilla-style movie screenings throughout the country. The sign of the times created a generation gap in the film industry. This is their story.
