Hollywood Director Penelope Spheeris & POWFest
From documenting heavy metal rockers and the punk scene to launching "Wayne's World", trailblazing filmmaker Penelope Spheeris joined us to talk about her two distinct careers in film-- one where she does mainstream Hollywood films and the other where she does independent music themed documentaries. She's also the Guest of Honor at this year's POWFest, which pays tribute to a key woman in the filmmaking industry who has helped pave the way for those just getting their start.
As part of POWFest, Ms. Spheeris will be screening a few of her documentaries and talking about her filmmaking experiences firsthand. The screenings of her films are at 2 p.m, 7pm and 9pm. Q&A’s with movie historian David Walker will take place after DUDES and in between SUBURBIA and DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION III. Movie goers will have an opportunity to hear from Ms. Spheeris as well as individuals whose lives were chronicled in DECLINE III.
