EDGE: Perspectives on Drug Free Culture

A 90 minute documentary from Marc Pierschel and Michael Kirchner

28 years after the band Minor Threat released the song ‘Straight
Edge’, the ideas it contained have spread worldwide through the punk
and hardcore music scenes and beyond. Straight edge bands and kids can
be found throughout the world and in countries as diverse as Costa
Rica, Argentina, South Korea, the UK, America and Germany.

EDGE explores 9 lives and gives a close and personal look at how
straight edge has changed the world for them. Through interviews with
musicians that shaped the culture of straight edge and its music scene
from inception, EDGE reveals why straight edge happened and what it
means today.

Part tour video, part road trip EDGE features exclusive interviews with:

    Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Evens, Dischord Records)
    Kent McClard (Heartattack Fanzine, Ebullition Records)
    Ray Cappo (Youth of Today, Shelter)
    Pat Flynn (Have Heart)
    Peter Young (anti-fur activist)
    Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis)
    Priyesh Patel (hardcore kid and environmentalist)
    Dr. Ross Haenfler (Professor of Sociology at University of Mississippi, author of Straight Edge: Clean-Living Youth, Hardcore Punk, And Social Change)
    Eva ‘Genie’ Hall (Gather)
    Bull Gervasi (R.A.M.B.O.)
    Russ Rankin (Good Riddance)
    Taylor Clements (a fifteen year-old kid wanting to be the world’sfirst vegan straight edge pro cyclist)

I like the fact that they're showing this in a pub. If I go and enjoy a pint while watching, will I get dirty looks? :?

FINALLY watched this!

It's alright. Not great. Not fantastic. But different. Calm. Decent. Respectful. Completely unpretentious.

Good thing they got Genie to do an interview, otherwise it would've been a complete sausagefest.

This way this film still stays an important piece of work amongst straightedge folks, while the rest will just watch "a bunch of losers bitch and whine about a tough world out there".

In case you're one of said people: fuck you.

Was just going to post saying I'd missed this by a couple of days, then realised it was a year ago. :?

torrent? I want to see this.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I see a lot of people have downloaded this, and I haven't yet publicly outed it.

Would the dear viewers care to comment per chance?

I saw the first part of it last summer and it was quite interesting.
I'm wondering if they also interviewed people who aren't edge for the movie...
