Skinhead Attitude

Skinhead Attitude is the first documentary which outlines the history of forty years of skinhead movement – from its extreme left to its extreme right wings. Starting by asking about the most recent development of the movement, the film describes the transformation and radicalisation of this subculture of youth. From London to Berlin, via Helsingborg, Dallas, Las Vegas et Montréal, skinheads establish themselves as a movement of youth with rebellious, violent, often extremist traits. Skins stir up fears and form the street movement which is feared most. They used to be objects of the media – but who are they really?
