FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his "caffeinated retardedness" as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to "achieve ALL," his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down.
Interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the story of a band – if not THE band – responsible for pop-punk as you know it.
About The Art Theatre of Long Beach: "Voted the number one independent theater in Los Angeles, the Art opened as a silent movie theater and included a pipe organ and orchestra pit. It is the oldest operating single screen house in Long Beach. Our art deco, streamline moderne-style historical landmark is famous for its screening of the most imaginative and stimulating independent, documentary, animated, alternative lifestyle, and foreign language films. After one million dollars of loving restoration, and the addition of a wine bar and coffee bar to round out a full evening experience, we are proud to continue this long-running tradition."
We would like to thank The Long Beach Art Theater for hosting this screening and for helping make this a free event. Please support this historic landmark by generously donating to their cause. Your contribution will help them continue to deliver the best in independent, documentary, alternative and foreign language films. You can donate to one of the marked boxes in the lobby of the theater or you can Donate to the theatre HERE via Paypal. We appreciate your support!

Epitaph Records was founded in 1981 by Brett Gurewitz of the influential punk rock band Bad Religion. This incredibly diverse and resolutely artist friendly label first entered the annals of pop culture in the early 90s when it introduced previously underground artists such as Rancid, The Offspring and Pennywise to a vastly larger audience, earning the bands gold and platinum records, and forever changing the sound of popular music.
Epitaph has since added additional imprint Anti-Records, which has developed into an independent power house servicing a roster of acclaimed and iconic artists such as Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Neko Case, Mavis Staples and many more. Epitaph Records currently operates out of offices in Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Toronto and Melbourne.
