Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Melbourne International Film Festival, the latest from Penelope Spheeris (SUBURBIA, DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION, WAYNE’S WORLD) was over two years in the making. She presents an amazing chronicle of the travelling musical carnival known as OZZfest, the most successful summer concert tour for the last five years. Complete access to incredible material sends this documentary film into the realm of pure entertainment. Unforgettable moments from zealous religious protesters, outrageous fans and the guys (and girls) backstage provide an insightful view into the soul of white, middle-class America. A stunning and sometimes disturbing glimpse of a cultural movement, this film is sure to be a reference for historians for decades to come. This comment on Middle America skates the line between your worst nightmare and the best time you’ve ever had. Features interviews with, and performances by BLACK SABBATH, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SLIPKNOT, PRIMUS, ROB ZOMBIE, GODSMACK and more. Plus, this is also your only chance to see SLAYER: Tourists at Alcatraz. The volume for this presentation will be set to 11.
