Good Vibrations (L.A. premiere, filmmakers & star in person!)

When it comes to punk, New York had the haircuts, London had the trousers, but Belfast had the reason. Set in the sobering, yet vibrant milieu of 1970s Ireland, Good Vibrations is one of the most stirring bio-pics of the last several years, bolstered by a stupendous, fist-pumping soundtrack of period jams, and an electrifying central performance by Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) as Terri Hooley. Proprietor of the film’s titular record shop/epicenter of Irish punk culture, Hooley was an old-school countercultural rebel and music-lover who immediately saw the emotional potential of punk’s power on his war-torn native land. Hooley’s three-chord journey through the years galvanized the local scene into action — and Good Vibrations‘ impassioned, revelatory lightning-in-a-bottle storytelling puts you right in the center of the times’ chaotic maelstrom. Get ready to get all hot and bothered for an entirely fresh, wild perspective on our collective punk rock legacy. Co-directors Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, along with star Richard Dormer and co-producer David Holmes, will all be here for a Q&A after the film!
Dirs. Lisa Barros D’Sa & Glenn Leyburn, 2012, 35mm, 103 min.
