BLOOD AND STEEL: CEDAR CREST COUNTRY CLUB is a feature documentary that tells the story of East Coast punk and skateboard history; one that’s untold to this day – recounted by the very pioneers from the D.C. hardcore punk music and skateboarding scene that created it. Cedar Crest was a ramp, but not just any ramp. It was a place of unadulterated freedom where cutting edge skateboarding and punk rock music collided and made history. The film takes the audience on a journey through the roots of east coast D-I-Y culture with the athletes, artists, bands and the characters that were there. It features notables such as Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), GWAR, and Tony Hawk as well as a long list of skateboarding legends.
