About
(Mandy Stein & Ben Logan, US, 2012, 107 min, in English)

Bad Brains were already unique when they formed in 1977, gaining an immediate fan base in their native Washington DC for their blistering hardcore punk shows. But Bad Brains had already cut their musical teeth playing jazz fusion under the name Mind Power, and their version of punk was already pushing in different directions.

While inspiring the likes of youngsters Henry Rollins (Black Flag) and Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat and Fugazi) and countless others, Bad Brains were already a step ahead of their contemporaries and embraced reggae, further adding to their musical palette. The group would go on to influence the likes of Living Colour, Faith No More and Fishbone. Following the bands career through ups and numerous, often painful, downs, this absorbing documentary from director Mandy Stein (Burning Down the House: the Story of CBGB and Too Tough To Die: A Tribute to Johnny Ramone) and Ben Logan combines scorching live footage with interviews with all the major players and the band, as well as charting their comeback tour and the groups often-fraught internal relationships.

the film is kinetic, frenetic and well paced with lots to love for any Bad Brains, punk or music fans. Their tribute is long overdue and we should be thankful that a film recognizing their musical genius, originality and influence exists at all.  IndieWire

Accessibility

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at maria@nwfilmforum.org
