Freakscene: The Story Of Dinosaur JrUnited States, Germany, 2021 : Alberta Premiere
An homage of one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the alternative rock scene of the '90s.
Using incredible archival footage of concerts, alongside first-hand interviews with members of the band and other rock icons including Thurston Moore, Frank Black and Henry Rollins, the music documentary tells the story of the Massachusetts group which formed in 1984, which went on to forever change America's rock scene, inspiring iconic bands like Nirvana and Sonic Youth. The documentary is an emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy roller-coaster ride about a dysfunctional family: Dinosaur Jr.
