DAVID MARKEY
                                                          Filmmaker
  

 

David Markey has sustained a truly independent career in the shadow of Hollywood and against the backdrop of corporate America for over three decades. As a filmmaker, photographer and musician, Markey brings together underground music, experimental cinema and contemporary culture in a direct and insightful way. His body of work is also historically significant, representing a unique record of the punk scene in Southern California throughout the 1980's and into the 1990's. His feature films include the acclaimed Sonic Youth / Nirvana tour documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke (1992) which also features The Ramones, the Los Angeles punk scene Super-8 cult classics; The Slog Movie (1982), Desperate Teenage Lovedolls (1984), and it's sequel Lovedolls Superstar (1986);  Shonen Knife: Blast Off! (1997), the international film festival favorite The Reinactors (2008), Dinosaur Jr.'s Bug Live at the 9:30 (2012) and the feature length documentary on legendary Los Angeles punk band Circle Jerks entitled My Career As A Jerk (2012). David Markey has also directed music videos for Redd Kross, Sonic Youth, Bob Mould, Meat Puppets, The Muffs, The Black Lips, Black Flag, Pat Smear, & Mudhoney. David is also a published author with the critically acclaimed book We Got Power! Hardcore Punk Scenes From 1980's Southern California (Bazillion Points 2012). He has also appeared in the documentary films We Jam Econo (The Story Of The Minutemen) (2005) & American Hardcore (2006). His indefatigable DIY aesthetic continues to drive him, as well as inspire a new generation of filmmakers, musicians and artists.
