FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL directed by Matt Riggle and Deedle LaCour, chronicles the legends of punk and treats audiences to interviews with the band and its contemporaries Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen) Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion), and many more, revealing the untold story of one of the most influential bands in punk.
“In the fall of 2010 we sat down for the first of more than 50 interviews and dozens of live shows in an attempt to tell the story of not only our favorite band, but also some of the most over-achieving and under-documented people in music history. Thirty-five years in 90 minutes. Phew,” co-director Matt Riggle said. Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love and coffee and influencing a generation to come. The documentary follows drummer and square-peg Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of band-mates to “achieve ALL,” his relentless concept of “going for greatness, the utmost possible” despite any and all setbacks.
