《Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits》讲述了史上第一支全女子朋克乐队The Slits的传奇故事,从女性的角度描绘了20世纪70年代中期英国朋克时代的绚烂图景。作为The Clash和Sex Pistols的同辈,她们被认为是后来的“朋克雷鬼”运动的教母。影片从其1976成立之初,完整记录到她们两张专辑的诞生——包括1979年的经典之作《CUT》,再到乐队的分离与重组,直至2010年随着主唱Ari Up的去世而落下帷幕。

《Here to be Heard》中有多位关键人物的出镜,包括前Slits经理 / 朋克纪录片制作人Don Letts、The Slits吉他手Viv Albertine、The Slits主唱Ari Up、The Slits创始人兼第一任鼓手Palmolive、The Slits贝司手Tessa Pollitt、The Slits第二任鼓手兼PIL乐队鼓手Bruce Smith、The Slits人声/键盘手/打击乐手Hollie Cook、纽约大学朋克教授Vivien Goldman、《CUT》制作人Dennis Bovell、Sex Pistols鼓手乐队Paul Cook和Raincoats乐队贝司手Gina Birch等等。


“Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits” tells the story of the world’s first all-girl punk band, shedding light on the mid-70’s British Punk era from a female point of view. Contemporaries of The Clash and Sex Pistols, they are the godmothers of the musical movement known as "Punky Reggae”. The film follows the band’s story from their inception in 1976, through two albums including 1979’s classic “CUT”, break up, reunion, and eventual end in 2010 with the death of lead vocalist Ari Up.

“Here to be Heard” includes interviews with Don Letts (former Slits manager / punk documentarian), Viv Albertine (Slits guitarist), Ari Up (Slits vocalist), Palmolive (Slits founder / first drummer), Tessa Pollitt (Slits bass player), Bruce Smith (Slits second drummer / PIL drummer), Hollie Cook (Slits vocalist / keyboards / percussion), Vivien Goldman (NYU's punk professor), Dennis Bovell (producer of The Slits album “CUT”), Paul Cook (Sex Pistols drummer), Gina Birch (Raincoats bass player), and many more.

The documentary also includes previously unseen footage of the band, as well as photographs and newspaper clippings.
