MUTINY IN HEAVEN: THE BIRTHDAY PARTY

The Birthday Party, one of underground music's most notorious and influential bands
2023 · 99 mins · Documentary

A twisted tale of ascent, realisation and implosion tells the story of The Birthday Party’s rise, apex and inevitable collapse. The film, told in the group’s own words, deals with the issues of artistic muse, creativity, addiction, fame and the unique relationship between creative vision and self-destruction – all underpinned by the dark, wry humour of the individual band members.

Regular price $17.00

"The greatness of Mutiny in Heaven is that White understands the importance of gory details. Instead of sanitizing things to protect the innocent, the film embraces the darkness and danger that defined the Birthday Party." - Georgia Straight
