Persecution Blues: The Battle for the Tote (2011) DVD9
Punk, passion, politics and public protest collide, in this documentary depicting the fight to save rock and roll in Melbourne. In 2010, the iconic Tote Hotel – last bastion of Melbourne's vibrant music counterculture – was forced to close due to the archaic laws of the Liquor Licensing Commission. Filmed over seven years, this documentary puts the audience on the front line of an epic-scale culture war, depicting the plight of more than 20,000 fans – along with the bands who inspire them – as they strive to preserve their history and protect the future of live music.
