In 1977, racist rhetoric divides Britain. What happens when a punk fanzine challenges the status quo?

With the exploding punk scene in Britain clashing with the growth of the xenophobic National Front in the late 1970s, and famous musos making anti-immigration statements on stage, a group of creatives including photographer Red Saunders, and Aussie graphic artist Ruth Gregory, banded together to create Rock Against Racism (RAR) and the zine Temporary Holding.

Speaking truth to power and featuring underreported stories and social issues including immigration, the Northern Ireland conflict, and police misuse of power, they gave voice to the voiceless and started a cultural revolution. Leading up to the iconic 1978 protest concert in Victoria Park, White Riot includes killer music, archival footage, original RAR zines, and reflections from the key players, including Steel Pulse, Tom Robinson, Pauline Black, and The Clash.
