GUEST: Donovan Vim Crony, Director of Anarchy Nowadays.

It is very rare to see rock, punk, and other forms of music dominated in the mainstream by white musicians and white consumers of music, to acknowledge the roots of their favored tradition. It is rarer still to admit that there are young black and brown artists creating and enjoying punk rock. Hollywood stereotypes always place African American youth in situations where hip hop or RnB is their musical tradition of choice.

Now, a young indie filmmaker wants to change all that. Donovan Vim Crony has imagined a 25 minute film called Anarchy Nowadays that he hopes will change the narrative.

On his crowdfunding page, he describes the film’s synopsis like this: “Several groups of young POC rockers take on their individual challenges of life as they inevitably all cross each others path at the biggest punk house show EVER.  Love, heartbreak, art, education, annihilation!  These rockers are trying to figure out life and how to live it.”
