Jazz v. Punk Documentary Screening
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! "Jazz v. Punk: Hermosa Beach" will screen at the Sunscreen Film Festival West at the Community Center on Nov. 5 “How did our little 1.4 sq. mile town of Hermosa Beach become known for both jazz and punk, such (seemingly) opposite styles of music?” The Sunscreen Film Festival Mentor Program explored this question a few years back, resulting in "Jazz v. Punk," a documentary short that has received nationwide attention in the film festival circuit. Features members of Black Flag, Pennywise, Circle Jerks, The Minutemen, as well as Charles Owens, Gloria Cadena, SPOT, and many South Bay locals. "It’s an impressive documentary that makes one realize that, despite its small size, in music Hermosa Beach has punched well above its weight."
