ANTIFA FILM TUESDAY // SHOW WEDNESDAY

04/09/2012

Paris 1980 – The myriad subcultures that emerged in the 50’s and 60’s – mods, rockers, punks, teddy boys, and skins, were increasingly sites of contestation.  Easily identifiable fashions and musical tastes made visible a separation that was increasingly politically based.  By 1985, racist, far-right ideologies had almost completely overtaken skinhead subculture. Gangs of skinheads posted up at various subway stops and roamed the streets of Paris looking for punks, people of color, and anyone ‘different’ to beat up.  Racist skinheads were taking territory and using fists, chains, and steel toed boots to fight for it.  Recognizing this enormous problem, Parisian youths from several subcultures took things into their own hands by banding together into gangs to kick the racist skins out of the city.  The gangs started small and outnumbered, but by the end of the decade had become so notorious that most racist skins dropped their fashions out of fear of being identified by the unrelenting “skinhead hunters.” This film chronicles the development and interplay of said subcultures and tells the story of the reclamation of the streets of Paris by the participants themselves.
