DOCUMENTARY: THE STORY OF SKINHEAD W/ DON LETTS
Documentary in which director and DJ Don Letts looks at a very particular and very provocative British subculture - skinhead.
Don shows in fascinating detail how the roots of skinhead are in a brilliant cultural collision between the young white working-class kids and their Jamaican counterparts in British inner cities, a moment of multicultural harmony. He traces the history of skinhead from the late 60s to the present, looking at the music and styles of skinhead from the reggae-influenced ska to the punk-influenced Oi. Don meets people who were committed members of various skinhead scenes throughout, and he considers the conflicts and the contradictions that skinhead has attracted over five decades.
