THE NEW YORK HARDCORE CHRONICLES
2017, Stone Films, 105 min, USA, Dir: Drew Stone

This incredible journey through the iconic New York hardcore scene is not the typical history of a local music scene but so much more. Shot in an episodic format, the film contains more than 60 interviews, never-before-seen footage, photos and a blazing soundtrack. With appearances by Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma (Agnostic Front), Lou Koller, Craig Setari (Sick of It All), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today), Billy Graziadei (Biohazard), Billy Milano (S.O.D. and M.O.D.) and Mike Judge (Judge), the film addresses the community, culture, straight-edge and DIY ethic of the hardcore scene in the greatest city in the world - a scene that is still vibrant, relevant and going strong to this day.


BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 90 min, USA, Dir: Stephen Herek

In this cult comedy favorite, teen slackers Bill Preston (Alex Winter) and Ted Logan (Keanu Reeves) could fail their history class unless they get a good grade on their oral report. But the stakes are even higher for the future of humanity, so the duo are given a time-traveling phone booth (manned by George Carlin), which introduces them to such historical figures as Napoleon, Billy the Kid and Socrates.


QUADROPHENIA
1979, Westchester Films, 115 min, UK, Dir: Franc Roddam

Inspired by The Who’s landmark concept album and featuring some of composer Pete Townsend’s most ambitious music, director Franc Roddam’s QUADROPHENIA is set against the backdrop of early 1960s England, where scooter-driving Mods and leather-clad Rockers clash for control of the beaches and juke joints. Phil Daniels stars as the rude boy struggling against Britain’s ultra-rigid class and education system, with support from Mark Wingett and Sting (in his acting debut).
