    This energizing documentary charts the true story of the London-based protest movement Rock Against Racism (RAR), formed in 1976 by punk musicians and other creatives. The film blends new interviews with archival footage to recreate the hostile environment of British anti-immigration hysteria and National Front marches opposed by RAR. With music by X-Ray Spex, Steel Pulse and of course The Clash. (photo credits: Creative England)
