The Captain Zip Video Trip

Captain Zip will introduce his films at The Museum of Club Culture, 10 Humber Street Hull, HU1 1TG on Thursday 25th November, 2010. Doors open 6.30pm, screening starts 7pm

Phil Munnoch aka Captain Zip had become involved in London’s punk scene and decided to start filming it for posterity. He reports spending every spare weekend filming on the Kings Road, where this footage was taken. While the punk scene was the subject of much television reportage and some independent film making, 'The Captain Zip Video Trip' is unusual in focussing exclusively on the everyday grassroots punk scene from the viewpoint of those directly involved. These vibrant time capsules of one of the most colourful explosions of expression the streets of England have witnessed were largely edited in-camera and have become an important social history resource enabling an inspiring form of time travel to a less politically censored age.
Captain Zip's films are a part of The British Film Institute National Film and Television archive.
