Take a behind the scenes look at one of the most influential indie bands of all time when a group of seven high school students set out to make a documentary on Sonic Youth!
As part of a non-profit called ‘Project Moonshine’, these teens were given cameras and a few days to be let loose and record a day in the life of Sonic Youth. The film is filled with behind-the-scenes interviews, original performances and the enveloping experience of a Sonic Youth concert from a new perspective. The result is a point of view that is authentically refreshing; a unique situation that allows the students to approach the band with an honesty and innocence that’s hard to find in veteran documentary filmmakers.
