Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as part of an ongoing series at LACMA. Director Penelope Spheeris’s blistering depiction of the early 1980s Los Angeles punk scene remains a classic in the cult-film canon, despite never being available on DVD. Spheeris’s grounbreaking documentary captures some of the scene’s seminal bands at their sweaty, ferocious peak, onstage and off. From OC hardcore progenitors Black Flag and Circle Jerks to Hollywood heavyweights Germs, X, and the intensely provocative Fear, Spheeris offers a mosher’s–eye view of the era’s greats. Spheeris also grants ample screen time to the fans and fellow travelers of this “high speed, high volume” scene, interviewing them with unflinching directness.

This extraordinary four-part vocal/instrumental work incorporates eclectic musical influences ranging from Bach to boogie-woogie, all in Andriessen’s unique style.
Composed during 1984-88 by Andriessen, Europe’s leading Minimalist, this rarely performed four-part quasi-opera displays his driven, intense, in-your-face, rock-influenced, edgy, and sonically unique style. Andriessen strongly influenced New York’s Bang On A Can, including founders Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe.
