AFS Presents: THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PT. III
August 29, 2015 @ 10:15 pm - August 30, 2015 @ 6:43 am
Penelope Spheeris joins us LIVE for two nights to present THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION trilogy. We’re also screening SUBURBIA, a masterpiece of not only punk cinema, but of the cinema of disaffected and alienated youth everywhere.
Directed by Penelope Spheeris
USA, 1998, DCP, 86 min., Color
The third and final installment of Penelope Spheeris’s DECLINE trilogy takes a look at a group of homeless teenage punks in the ‘90s. These kids are members of the gutter-punk scene in 1997, the better part of two decades after the first film. This time the kids seem hopeless and drained, none believe they will survive 5 years, but there’s also a kind of hope present, and the film has humor and compassion.
