Cleveland's Screaming 1981 - 1983 Documentary about the Cleveland H/C Scene
Clevland's Screaming, a lo-fi, low-light documentary on one local hardcore scene, is the kind of labour-of-love/by-product-of-hate that dozens of North American cities could have produced. Filmmaker/author and zen-punk Brad Warner documents the trials and tribulations of far-from-famous bands like Zero Defects, Starvation Army, Urban Mutants, Offbeats as well as numerous scenesters with great humanity. It's an arresting mix of new interviews and rough archival footage that rips along like the genre it documents.
Thanks to David McLean for pointing out this rough cut of the film!
