Bloodied But Unbowed chronicles the Vancouver punk rock scene of the late 70s and early 80s. Vancouver filmmaker Susanne Tabata's documentary tells a tale of rebellion and music, a fiercely independent scene played out in a microcosm of urban squalor. Told by its surviving stars whose accounts are suffused with both humour and gritty realism.

A brutally honest story from the streets and stages of the West Coast through interviews, music, photos, and archival performances.
Featuring interviews with DOA, Subhumans, Jello Biafra, Penelope Houston, Henry Rollins and Duff McKagan (from Guns N’ Roses). 

Fighting against small-town mentalities, draconian liquor laws, and overzealous law enforcement, D.O.A. and a handful of other bands created a movement that put the city on the punk-rock map. - WEST ENDER
