The documentary will be the Opening Night film for the 2023 Slamdance Film Festival on January 20 in Park City, UT. The film is Moby’s directorial debut and includes dozens of interviews with some of the biggest names in punk and rock history. These include Ian Mackaye, HR, Dave Navarro, Ray Cappo, Andrew Hurley, Tony Kanal, Tim McIlrath, Water Schreifels, Dave Dictor, Derrick Green, Steve Ignorant, Theo Kogan, Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, Amy Lee, and Captain Sensible.

Moby has been a vegan and Animal rights activist for 35 years. He grew up in and around New York City. Although he loves making music, his life’s work is to help create a world where animals and sentient beings are free to live their own lives.

Moby’s film will tell the long story of how punk rock became what he describes as the breeding ground for vegan activism. It is a call to action for viewers to stand up and fight intelligently, passionately, and loudly against injustice.

Moby will be giving away the film for free on the Slamdance website after the premiere at Slamdance. On January 30, the film will be available for streaming and downloading on YouTube and other free platforms.

“’PUNK ROCK VEGAN MOVIE’ was created to shine a light on the surprising and inspiring history of punk rock and Animal rights, but also to remind people of the importance and desperate urgency of adopting the uncompromising ethics and actions of the original punk rock activists,” said Moby. “After it makes its world premiere at Slamdance, it’s yours. It’s my goal to give the movie away, as I can’t in good conscience try to profit from what is essentially a labor of love and activism.”
