IFC rocks with ‘Punk’ doc

Project an examination of punk rock

IFC has ordered the original doc “Punk: Attitude” from Cactus 3 (HBO’s “Family Bonds”) and musicvid helmer Don Letts.

Feature-length project examines the music, performers, attitude and distinctive look that made up punk rock.

U.K.-based 3DD and FremantleMedia exec produce alongside Cactus 3. Metropolis Group is also on board to produce.

Letts, directed all of the Clash’s musicvideos and was a former DJ, pitched the concept with Cactus 3 to IFC. His credits include “The Punk Rock Movie,” a doc about the Brit punk scene, and Grammy winning video “Westway to the World,” an in-depth look at the Clash.

IFC original programming veep Alison Palmer Bourke likened the punk movement to the explosion of indie film in the ’80s, adding, “Punk rock incited a do-it-yourself attitude that has a huge influence on filmmakers and artists.”

Henry Rollins, Tommy Ramone, Jim Jarmusch, Legs McNeil, Chrissie Hynde, Thurston Moore, David Johansen, Jello Biafra and Mary Harron were among those interviewed for the project.

IFC will bow the doc July 4 during a special British Invasion film festival.

“Punk: Attitude” joins IFC’s lineup of upcoming original docs “Wanderlust,” from “American Splendor” team Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, and “Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession,” from Alexandra Cassavetes.
