The Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk documentary now has a trailer. The documentary covers 30+ years of California Bay Area’s punk scene history. It will focus on the emergence of Berkeley’s 924 Gilman Street music collective. It will be narrated by Iggy Pop with Green Day as executive producers.
The feature documentary will have its world premiere as the opening night film of the 16th SF DOCFEST on May 31st followed by an initial one week theatrical run at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in San Francisco starting June 2nd. The hometown opening will be followed by screenings in cities across the USA in tandem with Green Day’s Revolution Radio World Tour.
Here’s what Billie Joe Armstrong had to say:
“Turn It Around gave us the opportunity to tell the story of the East Bay punk rock scene, a scene that’s a sacred thing to me, Mike and Tré and to a lot of others who were there at the founding and who helped to shape the genre. We’re proud to bring the history of this movement to the world and hope the film inspires people to create their own music and to build an artistic community.”
