This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to trace a tendency in cinema that owes some debt to the aesthetics and politics of the punk movement in the United States and Britain in the 1970s. New punk cinema is animated by the same do-it-yourself approach that characterized the punk movement of the 1970s. Digital cameras and desktop editing have made it possible for a greater number of people than ever before to make films. The chapter also traces the development of punk rock, punk cinema and new punk cinema.

Keywords: punk rock; punk cinema; films; do-it-yourself approach
