Anvil! More Anvil!

A few posts back I linked up an article from the New York Times about a documentary film based on the career of Anvil. Here's some viewing opportunities for those in shooting distance of the Bay Area. The info came from from the Aquarius Records website.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil!
Sacha Gervasi, United States, 2008, 80 min.

It plays like a mockumentary, think This Is Spinal Tap in the frozen North, but this wonderful and often hilarious documentary follows the antics, on- and offstage, of a once famous Canadian heavy metal band, Anvil, founded in the 1970s by two Toronto school friends (and nice Jewish boys). Anvil had a megahit album in 1982, influencing a generation of metal bands; then, missteps and struggles. But Anvil rocks on. Sponsored by Nancy Goldberg and Shana Penn, honoring Elizabeth Greene for her nine years of extraordinary service to SFJFF. Co-presented by the San Francisco Bay Guardian / and Aquarius Records

Box office opens June 24th. For tickets and more information
