High School Record Coming To DVD
Like most high school students, they ride a continual wave of embarrassment: crappy after-school jobs, attempted sex in the science room, tinfoil shorts, guitar-strumming hippie teachers, and brushes with the law. The only difference is that their moments of humiliation are all caught on tape — our gang of four are the subjects of a documentary shot by fellow classmates.
The film stars band members of No Age, Mika Miko, Lavender Diamond and Minutemen and was an official selection of Sundance, SXSW and New York Underground Film Festivals. DVD extras include 13 minutes of deleted scenes and a short film that influenced High School Record.
Factory 25 will be releasing five titles through the remainder of 2009. In addition to High School Record, the Brooklyn, NY independent film and music label will be releasing 1001 Nights featuring Damon and Naomi, Frownland directed by Ronald Bronstein, All The Way From Michigan Not Mars featuring Rosie Thomas, Sufjan Stevens and Denison Witmer and You Weren't There: A History of Chicago Punk 1977-84.
