Special Premiere Screening!

(2014) dir Lance Bangs w/Slint, Steve Albini, Ian Mackaye, David Grubbs, David Yow, James Murphy, Will Oldham. [93 min; Digital]

A brand-new feature length documentary about the band Slint and the Louisville music culture they emerged from.

Throughout the 1980s, a group of friends in Louisville, Kentucky grew up forming bands, breaking up, and reforming in different configurations. They were playing hardcore shows at ages 10-12, touring with Samhain as 14 year olds, recording for Homestead as Squirelbait at age 15, then formed Slint in their late teens and recorded the classic album Spiderland before they were 21. They broke up before the album’s release, giving no interviews and vanishing into their own shadows. Now, two decades later, filmmaker Lance Bangs has assembled unseen footage of the teenagers writing and arranging Spiderland along with the first on-camera interviews with the band members and their contemporaries trying to decipher what they have been through.
