#ReGENERATION, the documentary film produced by Anonymous Content & Engine 7 Films, and featuring music by STS9, makes its Bay Area debut for one night only on Thursday April 19th, the evening before STS9 plays Oakland, CA’s Fox Theater. Doors are at 7:00pm and the screening starts at 7:30PM sharp, followed by a Q & A with Director Phillip Montgomery, Producer Matt DeRoss and members of STS9. The screening will take place at the Landmark Bridge Theatre, 3010 Geary Boulevard at Blake in San Francisco. Very limited tickets are available NOW exclusively thru STS9 Ticketing.
The award-winning documentary film, #ReGENERATION, explores the galvanizing forces behind the Occupy Movement and the state of social activism in our society. The film takes an uncompromising look at the challenges facing today’s youth and young adults as they attempt to engage on a myriad of social and political issues.
Focused on how our education, parenting, and media can influence us, the film follows three separate walks of life representing today’s generation. Each brings their own unique perspective – from an inspired collective of musicians working outside the corporate system, to a twenty-something conservative family about to welcome the birth of their second child, and a group of five high-school students from the suburbs looking for their place in society. Their stories are interspersed with the knowledge, wisdom, and personal reflections of some of the country’s leading scholars, social activists, and media personalities, including Noam Chomsky, the late Howard Zinn, Adbusters’ Kalle Lasn, Andrew Bacevich, Talib Kweli, and many others.
Narrated by Ryan Gosling and featuring a riveting soundtrack from STS9, the film explores how today’s generation approaches activism, how it is impacted by technology, our disconnection with nature and history, our consumer culture, and the economic factors holding many of us back from becoming more active participants in our communities. Through a diverse and intelligent series of stories, interviews and insights, we come to a deeper understanding of the influences shaping our society. We have entered uncharted territory, economically, environmentally, and intellectually–and we must look honestly at ourselves to create a sustainable future.
