FILMAGE tells the story of not only our favorite band, but some of the most over-achieving and under-documented people in music history spanning a 30+ year career.
“Long before Green Day and Blink 182 inflicted punk-rock’s puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage concocting the perfect mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee. FILMAGE: THE STORY OF DESCENDENTS / ALL follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his “caffeinated retardedness” as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to “achieve ALL,” his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down. Interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the story of a band–if not THE band–responsible for pop-punk as you know it.”

Cruddy, grainy VHS video footage gloriously enhances this bleak masterpiece of the dark end of the American rock ‘n’ roll dream. Director Jim Morrison follows the downward spiral of his high-school-dropout friend Harry “Guy” Biechele, a musician who at 42 is still obsessed with heavy metal music. The dude is homeless, living in a tent behind a seaside graveyard in the Village of Greenport Long Island, and his guitars have been stolen. After decades of hardships, Harry hasn’t stopped seeking refuge in his electric guitar. “Guy was as good as Clapton or Hendrix,” says one friend. This is the perfect CIMMfest movie.
