S.P.I.T Daniel Cross

Film index A to Z

Daniel Cross spent ten years filming people who are rarely heard. With the help of Eric “Roach” Denis, he takes us inside the squats, protests and punk shows that frame the squeegee punk’s world. At a time when public policy was driving them further into the criminal underground, S.P.I.T. gave names and faces to the people on the other side of the windshield, and gave the world a new filmmaker – Roach went on to direct Punk Le Vote and Les Tickets.
