In Theatres: STRAIGHT INTO A STORM

New to theatres today, Friday, June 15:
STRAIGHT INTO A STORM

Director:
William Miller

Premiere:
Nashville 2017

Select Festivals:
Doc’n Roll, Reel Music

About:
A celebration of the Providence alt-rock band Deer Tick.

Filmed in conjunction with the band’s 10th anniversary in 2014-2015, which was marked by a series of shows in NYC, Miller’s film follows standard music doc conventions, blending extensive performance footage with behind the scenes, archival, and interviews reflecting on Deer Tick’s formation, lineup changes, life on tour, and its colorful band members. Tailor-made for existing fans, the doc is decidedly insider, chock-full of anecdotes often dependent on foreknowledge of bandmates’ histories and personalities, making this a slog to get through for a casual viewer unfamiliar with the band.
