Documentary Filmmaker DREW STONE To Direct 'The New York Hardcore Chronicles Film'
February 4, 2015
Director Drew Stone ("xxx All Ages xxx The Boston Hardcore Film", "'Who the F*$@ Is That Guy?' The Fabulous Journey Of Michael Alago') is slated to direct "The New York Hardcore Chronicles Film". Centered on the community and culture of the iconic New York hardcore music scene, the film will be produced by Stone Films NYC for a 2016 release.
"My intention is not to make a film documenting the history of New York hardcore, but to tell the story in an episodic format with the thread of New York hardcore running through it," said Stone. "For example, the 'Spray Paint the Walls' segment explores the connection between graffiti and New York hardcore. In 'The Return To The A7', Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma of AGNOSTIC FRONT revisit the legendary A7 club, the birthplace of New York hardcore, for the first time in over 30 years."
"I'm really looking forward to this film, as a fan of the hardcore genre/culture in general, and of course the special New York hardcore faction we're all part of," said Freddy Cricien of MADBALL. "I go way back with Drew Stone — he actually filmed MADBALL's very first video, and I consider him a friend. He has the credibility, the experience and — most importantly — the passion to deliver something super authentic, which for me and I'm sure a lot of folks, is most important of all!"
The film's trailer can be seen below.
There will be a 20-minute "Excerpt Screening" as part of a book release party for "NYHC New York Hardcore 1980-1990" by Tony Rettman at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 1 at the Grand Victory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. THE NIHILISTICS, THE HIGH & THE MIGHTY and ALTERCATION will play the event.
Drew Stone is an American film director, producer, editor and musician. His works include music videos, commercials, documentary films and television. He founded the New York City-based film production company Stone Films NYC and played an active role in the early stages of American hardcore.
