OUTCASTS BY CHOICE
In 1977, three brothers and a friend living in war-torn Belfast formed The Outcasts, a band that would lead the punk explosion in Northern Ireland, while rejecting the status quo and ignoring the sectarian violence that surrounded them. Now back on the road to perform all over Europe as their 40th anniversary approaches, the band is ready and willing to reminisce about the early days of Belfast punk. With intimate access to the band and a wealth of energetic archival materials, Paul and Kate McCarroll have recaptured a powerful moment in Belfast youth culture and a compelling insight into a band reclaiming that youth. Official Selection, 2016 Galway Film Fleadh and Belfast Film Festival. DIR Kate McCarroll; DIR/PROD Paul McCarroll. Ireland, 2016, color, 76 min. NOT RATED
