May 17: Emily Flake at AFI


Post-screening panel discussion with co-producer Dan Didier, Washington Post pop music critic Chris Richards, New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake and Jawbox frontman J. Robbins, moderated by John Davis, UMD Performing Arts Metadata Archivist

In 2007, 11 years after one of the most influential American punk bands, Jawbreaker, called it quits, the three members, Blake Schwarzenbach, Chris Bauermeister and Adam Pfahler, reconnected in a San Francisco recording studio to listen back to their albums, reminisce and even perform together. This documentary follows the band as they retell their rags-to-riches-to-rags story and writhe with inner band turmoil, health issues and the aftermath of signing to a major label. Featuring interviews with Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Albini, Jessica Hopper, Graham Elliot, Chris Shiflett, Josh Caterer and more. (Note courtesy of Rocket Fuel Films.) DIR/SCR Tim Irwin; DIR/PROD Keith Schieron. U.S., 2017, color, 77 min. NOT RATED
