In person: filmmakers Jeff Krulik and John Heyn, producers Rudy Childs and Billy Gordon

30th Anniversary of the original Heavy Metal Picnic!
From the team behind cult hit HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT, this is a celebration of mid-'80s Maryland rock and roll and heavy metal, by those who lived –– and survived –– it. The film focuses on the 1985 Full Moon Jamboree, a weekend field party to end all field parties, so raucous that it made the evening news. Much of it was recorded using a home video camera and a stolen CBS News microphone swiped from the Reagan Inauguration earlier that year. Some 25 years later, Jeff Krulik and John Heyn revisit the scene and meet the people behind the party, as well as the musicians who performed, including mid-Atlantic doom metal icons Asylum. DIR/PROD Jeff Krulik; PROD John Heyn, Rudy Childs, Billy Gordon. US, 2010, color, 90 min, digital presentation. NOT RATED
