CANADIAN PREMIERE!

HERE TO BE HEARD: THE STORY OF THE SLITS tells the story of the first all-girl punk band, shedding light on the mid-70’s British Punk era from a female point of view. Contemporaries of The Clash and Sex Pistols and godmothers of the musical movement known as «Punky Reggae», the film follows the band’s story from their inception in 1976, through two albums including 1979’s classic “Cut”, break up, reunion, and eventual end in 2010 with the death of lead vocalist, Ari Up.

Here to be Heard includes previously unseen footage and recordings of the band, and interviews with Don Letts (former Slits manager / punk documentarian), Viv Albertine (Slits guitarist), Ari Up (Slits vocalist), Palmolive (Slits founder / first drummer), Tessa Pollitt (Slits bass player), Bruce Smith (Slits second drummer / PIL drummer), Hollie Cook (Slits vocalist/keyboards/percussion), Vivien Goldman (NYU's punk professor), Dennis Bovell (producer of The Slits album CUT), Paul Cook (Sex Pistols drummer), Gina Birch (Raincoats bass player), and many more.
