Sound for the Future

An affectionate, daring and hilarious reconstruction of the story of The Hippies, Britain’s youngest post-punk band, as told by the band’s drummer, filmmaker Matt Hulse.

“An incredibly ambitious, and community-minded film, Sound For The Future explores how impossible it is to separate personal, political, and national histories, and how difficult that can be to reckon with.”
Joel Whitaker, The Slice

Sound for the Future now streaming!

Following its recent tour, which culminated in a sell-out show at Reading’s Biscuit Factory, Sound for the Future is now available to watch via various streaming services.

Filmmaker and ex-drummer Matt Hulse (Dummy Jim, Follow the Master) journeys to the past and reconstructs The Hippies, Britain’s youngest post-punk band, in this energetic, witty and passionate documentary.

Affectionate, daring and hilarious, Sound for the Future is a highly creative exploration of family history, art, punk music, politics and attitude, celebrating the power of creative resistance.
