This is National Wake

Directed by Mirissa Neff

This is National Wake traces the wild rise and tragic fall of a multiracial South African punk band, dubbed “the band that defied apartheid”, whose members risked everything to taste freedom. This debut feature, steeped in previously unseen footage of a 1970s anit-racist counterculture that few knew existed, reveals a band whose music and memories comprise a profound meditation on how history is lived through art and in our minds.
