Filmage is the story Descendents and All, two tightly linked and influential pop-punk bands of the 80s/90s. I’m a sucker for music documentaries, so I got really interested when I heard there would be a screening at Le Cercle on December 11th. Refused Are Fucking Dead was pretty much my only experience in terms of punk rock documentary so I came in with a lot of expectations and I was pleasantly surprised. Filmage is at the opposite spectrum of Kristofer Steen’s film : it’s funny, upbeat and, most importantly, it’s positive. Even though they battled with death, breakups, illness, these guys never doubted themselves and kept going. After thirty years of being underdogs, Descendents/All are just starting to get some recognition and I must say it’s well deserved.
My stupid ass trying to eat confetti at the Boomerang 2013 gala Thursday night. Oh and we won a bunch of prizes too!
