Documentary: L7: Pretend We’re Dead Directed by Sarah Price
Grab your backstage pass and take a visceral immersion into the 1990s with one of its seminal grunge punk bands, L7. Pigeonholed as an all-female band despite their every effort, L7’s fierce members struggled against music industry and fan expectations even as they contended with questions of celebrity and success. Assembling a dynamic combination of never-before-seen home video footage, candid interviews, and raucous performances, director Sarah Price explores the rise and fall of the influential band. Filmmaker and members of L7 expected in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
