Local filmmaker (and former Blood for Blood bassist) Ian McFarland turned to Kickstarter a few years back in order to finance his latest project, The Godfathers of Hardcore, a documentary about two hardcore legends who deserved a larger spotlight. Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma have been friends for 30 years, and bandmates for nearly as long, forming the creative nucleus of the band Agnostic Front. They’ve seen some tough times — health issues, creative conflicts, and even a prison sentence — but the two have stuck it out through thick and thin. Obviously this material is close to McFarland’s heart, and we’re fascinated to see how his passion for its subject matter has informed his approach. The Independent Film Festival Boston brings it to The Brattle in Cambridge this weekend, details below.
‘GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE’ :: Saturday, April 28 at The Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St. in Cambridge, MA :: 9:30 p.m., all ages, $12 to $20 :: Advance tickets :: Featured image via trailer screengrab
