The Death of Indie Rock

CANADA – 2008 – 75 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN ENGLISH
A FILM BY ROB FITL

Dillon (Joe Salvoni), Parker (Doug Brown), and Hot Dog (Allen Finn) are in a band, stuck playing low-paying shows and working dead-end jobs. When they get the chance to move to Montreal for a regular gig at a downtown club, they jump at it. But the road from no-name indie act to rock-star fame is a bumpy ride. Shot in Kingston and edited with a breezy staccato rhythm, director Rob Fitl's first feature is a rough-and-tumble look at a young local band chasing their dreams — and occasionally their nightmares. Indie rock may be dead, but indie filmmaking is alive and kicking.
