A Subversive Act

This is one of the first documentary shorts I ever made (it was actually a group project). I was still figuring out how to shoot and edit, but I wanted to include it here because I just love the story. We followed Pavla Jonssonova, a bassist for an all-women punk band in the Czech Republic. During communism they were forced to play underground, but were focused on playing happy songs about having tea. They still play together today. I have no permission to use the archival footage in this film.
