Posted in Articulos with tags , , , , , , , , on octubre 6, 2009 by No Ego

On Saturday October 3rd the world premier of the documentary EDGE, Perspectives on drug free culture took place in New York.

German filmmakers Marc and Michi from Compassion Media, worked really hard interviewing key people around the United States; the likes of  Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat), members of Youth of Today, Earth Crisis, Etc…To make this 100% DIY documentary.

We hope to see  the DVD with the deleted footage of Muslim Straight Edge, Sean Mutaqui(Vegan Reich) when it comes out.

After the screening and a vegan pizza orgy  in Brooklyn’s Vinnie’s With Acoustic Animal Liberation solo act True Nature and Seth green’s double(family guy) we interviewed the filmmakers and this is what they had to say.

If you are on Gringoland, you can attend a screening they are still on TOUR.

EDGE
Perspectives on drug free culture

WORLD PREMIERE this Saturday Oct. 3rd 8:PM
Helen Mills Theatre ( map )
TICKETS HERE!

28 years after the band Minor Threat released the song ‘Straight Edge’, the counterculture known as Straight Edge has become a worldwide phenomenon that unites individuals rejecting all forms of intoxication.
The most widely associated perception of Straight Edge involves abstinence from alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and promiscuous sex. Since it’s origin in the early 1980’s these beliefs have spread all over the world, connected through the Punk and Hardcore music scenes.
Through interviews with musicians that directly shaped the idea of Straight Edge from its inception until today,EDGE – perspectives on drug free culture reveals that the abstinence from drugs was established as a youth counter culture rejecting a society dominated by substance abuse and hegemony.
Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis, Freya) give witness to their perception of the history of Straight Edge, why it was so important to them and what it changed in their personal and professional careers. But they also address problems like violence, sexism and intolerance that emerged within Straight Edge, and how it changed the ’scene’ as well as its public image.
Furthermore, EDGE explores the lives of 9 individuals, that identify as Straight Edge. Their reasons range from negative experiences with drugs to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to political reasons. Through a very close and personal look into their daily lives, we see how their decision to live ‘poison free’ has changed the world for them.
But how do people discover Straight Edge? How do women experience Straight Edge subculture? What social backgrounds are shared by people new to the scene and what makes someone turn Straight Edge? How does mainstream culture perceive this movement?
EDGE is looking for answers to these questions on a roadtrip behind and beyond the scenes of the Straight Edge subculture.
