What do punk rockers and senior citizens have in common? As Washington D.C. rapidly gentrifies, a low income African American community is threatened. This documentary takes a look at the struggles of living in a city in the midst of change, and the unique relationships that can develop. Mark Anderson- a writer , activist and punk rocker, created ‘We are Family’ to provide an outreach network to a group of inner city senior citizens. Through an existing group of punk rockers and fellow activists, he used similar diy and punk rock ethics, to bring the two together. Providing grocery deliveries, advocacy about the neighborhood and visiting, We are Family provides a unique model for changing the way we look at old age. Very punk rock.
