“It felt like our lives were movies,” says Debbie Harry in this ode to the gritty, no-rules ’70s downtown scene, filled with rare clips from No Wave films and interviews with Jim Jarmusch, John Waters, Steve Buscemi, Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore, James Nares, and more. In a broke, crime-ridden NYC, underground filmmakers, experimental musicians and cutting-edge artists created the era’s most provocative work.

IFC Center does not generally provide advisories about subject matter or potentially triggering content in films, as sensitivities vary from person to person. In addition to the synopses, trailers and other links on our website, further information about content and age-appropriateness for specific films can be found on Common Sense Media, IMDb and as well as through general internet searches.
