Afro-Punk focuses on the lives of four African Americans dedicated to the punk rock lifestyle, interspersed with interviews from a chorus of over 80 Black punks from throughout the United States.

The film tackles several universal topics around Black identity: interracial dating, marginalization, the double consciousness of Black Americans, and notions of what it means to be Black.

After the films premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Spooner toured the film throughout the United States and abroad. Screening it over 300 times in the first three years, the film garnered a following, giving punks a template for discussing race within the scene. Later, the Afro-Punk message board connected alternative Black people from around the world. In 2004, Spooner began holding concerts to foster that community, which eventually lead to his co-founding the Afropunk Festival.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
