Facebook fan Georgia Archer is one-half of the two-woman team heading up the Barbershop Punk documentary project. The duo is Kickstarting funds for the film, which features interviews with Damian Kulash of OK Go, Janeane Garofalo, Henry Rollins, Ian MacKaye and many others.
BARBERSHOP PUNK is an independent feature length documentary directed by two women and inspired by the journey of one man who challenged the status-quo and showed us all what it means to B Punk. Filmed all over the country and edited in our living rooms, it’s the little-film-that-could, approaching the Net Neutrality debate on a personal level, and questioning the authority of behind-closed-door agreements that directly affect your free speech and first amendment rights on the internet.
Emboldened by a hard fought and award-winning festival run (SXSW, AFI Silverdocs, Denver STARZ, IFF Watch Docs, AFI Fest, Sidewalk, Vermont to list a few), we’ve realized that the free speech issues raised by this film are big and need to be brought to the attention of a MUCH larger audience.
