This Is GwarUnited States, 2021 : Canadian Premiere
The powerful story of the iconic heavy metal-art collective GWAR, who are determined to put on the wildest and bloodiest metal shows in the world.
This all-encompassing documentary tracks GWAR’s formation in the 1980s, to their brief mainstream success in the ‘90s, to their cult following today. Considered by their legion of fans to be the galaxy’s greatest rock band, GWAR is one of the most recognized heavy metal performance art troupes, with their legendary stage shows and iconic grotesque costumes. From interviews with virtually every living member of the band, to incredible archive footage from their live performances, THIS IS GWAR documents both the performers’ artistic influence, and the personal and tragic stories of those who have contributed to the band’s success over the years.
