At the Matinee | Feature Documentary
Directed by Giangiacomo De Stefano
Produced by La Sarraz Pictures (Turin) - U.S. Co-Producer Marc Smolowitz
Through the memories of Walter Schreifels and his music, AT THE MATINEE tells the unique story of New York's Lower East Side in the late 1980s — a place and time that became synonymous with hardcore music, counter culture and defiant youth. Through Schreifels’ unique first person lens, we will meet a motley cast of characters who were also there and influential in the scene, painting an unmatched portrait of that time and how it still influences their creative lives to this day. AT THE MATINEE will also take us to Germany and Italy, places that are important to Schreifels’ life as a musician, to examine how hardcore and its legacy has had a footprint in other parts of the world to this day.
