A U.S. Latino Hardcore Punk Documentary
Mas alla de los Gritos (Beyond the Screams) is a 1999 documentary film featuring the Latino/Chicano punk movement from the late 1970s up until the early 1990s. Martin Sorrondeguy, singer of hardcore punk bands Los Crudos and Limp Wrist, and a prominent figure in both the straight edge scene and the queercore scene, illustrates the repurposing and remixing of punk music in the major Latino cities on the U.S. This one of a kind documentary sheds light on the political D.Y.I. philosophy which aims to empower youth to emancipate themselves from society's oppression. The film is composed of interviews and live performances. The film focuses on the struggle of Latino/Chicano against globalization, poverty, and identity.
