One film that we are really excited to see make it’s way into the VTXIFF is xxx All Ages xxx, this is a documentary film that explores the early Boston Hardcore music scene from the years 1981 thru 1984. Unlike earlier films that were centered on the members of the bands, this film delves into the social and communal aspects of that particular era. The community, culture, straight edge and DIY (Do it yourself) ethic of the time are all explored in the film. Never before seen archival footage, photographs, interviews and dramatizations make up the body of the film.
The origins of the “xxx All Ages xxx” film project go as far back as September 1981. At the time Duane Lucia (Executive Producer) was the owner and operator of the Gallery East performance / art space located in Boston. The Gallery East provided an early “All Ages” venue making it instrumental in giving birth to the upcoming local “Hardcore” scene. Katie “The Kleening Lady” Goldman (Producer) was a communication major and radio personality at Emerson College as well as a driving force in the burgeoning local hardcore scene. She was involved with the promotion of all ages hardcore shows at the gallery including The Mighty CO’s which was fronted by fellow Emerson student Drew Stone (Director). In 2009 the three formed an alliance with the intention of making a documentary film focusing on the early Boston Hardcore scene. It was agreed upon that under the Gallery East name Duane Lucia would finance the project and assume the role of Executive Producer, Katie Goldman would be the film’s Producer and Drew Stone the Director / Editor along with Alan Dubin.
Even cooler? Legendary band DYS is coming to the film festival to play the afterparty with a few other bands on the bill. This will be your chance to watch a great documentary on bands that helped define their genre of music, and watch on of the bands that did it live and in person.
One documentary we really want to catch is Stick ‘Em Up! a movie about the illegal art street movement in Houston Texas. Watch the trailer it looks fascinating.
The film will be part of the after hours block on March 9th.
