HERE TO BE HEARD: THE STORY OF THE SLITS is a documentary on the first all-girl punk band that provides a look at the mid-70s punk era from a female point of view. Contemporaries of The Clash and Sex Pistols and the pioneering godmothers of the musical movement known as «Punky Reggae», the film runs from the band's inception in 1976 to its end in 2010 coinciding with the death of lead vocalist, Ari Up.

Film includes interviews with Don Letts (former Slits manager / Punk documentarian), Viv Albertine (Slits guitarist), Ari Up (Slits vocalist), Palmolive (Slits founder / first drummer), Tessa Pollitt (Slits bass player), Bruce Smith (Slits second / PIL drummer), Hollie Cook (Slits vocalist / keyboards / percussion), Vivien Goldman (NYU's Punk professor), Dennis Bovell (producer of The Slits album CUT), Paul Cook (Sex Pistols drummer), Gina Birch (Raincoats bass player), Adrien Sherwood (producer / long-time friend and collaborator of the band) and many more, as well as previously unseen footage and recordings of the band.

Director William E Badgley (KILL ALL REDNECK PRICKS) will be in attendance for an introduction and Q&A.
