L7: Pretend We're Dead + live band after the film (band TBC)
Doc’n Roll Film Festival - the UK’s music documentary festival - is delighted to return to Hull in collaboration with Hull Independent Cinema this May, for a second unmissable edition of sound & vision. Once again, Doc’n Roll serves up a hand-picked selection of six of the best new documentaries - all of them Hull premieres.
L7: Pretend We're Dead is a culmination of the band’s re-ignited enthusiasm fueled by their fans’ outpouring of encouragement and support on social media when the band hinted at the idea of a documentary in early 2015. Culled from over 100 hours of unearthed vintage home movies taken by the band, never before seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We're Dead chronicles the band’s triumphs and failures. It takes viewers on an all access journey into the 1990’s grunge movement that took the world by storm. Charged with lyrics that had political bite and humor which proved irresistible to the disenfranchised, the marginalized, and the punk, they helped define grunge as the genre of a generation.
The excitement around the L7: Pretend We're Dead announcement has catalyzed a widely anticipated reunion bringing their high-octane energy and anthemic chops to the stages across the US and beyond.
