About
(David Roth, US, 2021, 52 min, in English)

The Baldies shares the story of a mid-1980s group which formed based on the fashion of British skinhead culture. Inspired by historical street gangs including the Fordham Baldies and the Wanderers, the gang discovered a mutual distaste for and fought against Nazi-skinheads active in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. Notably, they fought against the White Knights, a Nazi-skinhead gang, as well as St. Paul-based Bound for Glory, one of the largest white power bands in the world. Eventually the Baldies created a more inclusive group, the Anti-Racist Action (ARA). Members included skinheads and others who protested Nazis as well as other societal reformation topics including police brutality, foreign wars, the housing shortage and income inequality.

The gangs studies of British skinhead subculture directly relates to immigrants from the West Indies, as those people brought their music and culture to Great Britain when they came, said David Roth, TPT Director/Producer of The Baldies and the recently completed Minnesota Hardcore among other productions. Essentially, the Baldies gang was formed at the intersection of cultures and active in speaking out about anti-racism and police brutality. The conversation this documentary encourages is so necessary and relevant, especially in Minneapolis, especially today.

Accessibility

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!
