Description: Mohawks, stage diving, fists flying. Homemade band t-shirts, circle pits, singalongs. These scenes are not unfamiliar; they have flooded pop culture imagery for more than 25 years. The punk rock ethos gains new relevance in Israel when band members' choices are often between picking up a guitar or picking up a gun. "Jericho's Echo" introduces us to some of the colorful characters of the little-known Israeli punk scene, and gives us insights into their lives through interviews, verite' scenes and live musical footage. The young people in these bands represent the future of this important region, and their views are not those usually portrayed by the mainstream media.
