8th September London, UK: Munro Film is delighted to share the brand new trailer and poster for music documentary Freakscene - The Story of Dinosaur Jr. It will be released in UK Cinemas from 1st October.
Freakscene - The Story of Dinosaur Jr. is a homage to one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast which inspired the rock scene, including Nirvana and Sonic Youth, in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred to as "Grunge", laid the foundation for the entire "Slacker" culture of Generation X. It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph, and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music, although filmmaker Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak. An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family, Dinosaur Jr.
Subsidised by German Films, directed by Philipp Reichenheim (The Report, Bruno.S-Die Fremde ist der Tod, Dinosaur Jr.: Live in the Middle East) the documentary stars the band members J. Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph, as well as Kim Gordon, Henry Rollins, Bob Mould and Thurston Moore. Front man J.Mascis is also a producer of the film, alongside Stephan Holl and Antoinette Köster.
