The 90-minute long film, directed by Leigh Brooks, will focus on the group’s thirty-year career and will also contain video material from the private archive of the bands, rare photos, unpublished interviews and more. The stream of this virtual screening will be available for two weeks. Ticket pre-orders available at this location.
“The story of three lifelong friends who overcame domestic violence, substance abuse and depression to form Life Of Agony, one of the most influential bands in its genre, led by the very first openly transgender singer. Through the success of their groundbreaking 1993 debut River Runs Red, hailed by Rolling Stone as “One of the Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”, they channeled their cumulative life stories into a soundtrack for a broken generation. This newfound fame allowed them to suppress the tragedies of their pasts, but in the wake of their accomplishments, unforeseen obstacles arose.
The 90-minute film also takes a deep dive into lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition. “We’ve never avoided tough conversations and we don’t pretend to have all the answers,” says Caputo. “But, this film is a road map with many great lessons. It shows a ton of vulnerability… moments of falling downward and others where we rise strong. Enjoy this gift of imperfection. May you find the tools to be braver with this film.”
