This exhilarating journey was produced by Deedle LaCour, Matt Riggle, Stefany Strah, James Rayburn, Justin Wilson, Caryn Capotosto and Marissa LaCour and lensed by Justin Wilson. “FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL,” begins its theatrical run at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles on September 26, with filmmaker and special iconic “guest” Q&As following screenings on September 26 through 29, culminating in exciting bicoastal release parties on September 29 in Los Angeles and Brooklyn.

"In the fall of 2010 we sat down for the first of more than 50 interviews and dozens of live shows in an attempt to tell the story of not only our favorite band, but also some of the most over-achieving and under-documented people in music history. Thirty-five years in 90 minutes. Phew," Matt Riggle, co-director of “FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL.”
Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a van brewing a potent mix of pop, angst, love and coffee and influencing a generation to come. The documentary follows drummer and square-peg Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of band-mates to “achieve ALL,” his relentless concept of “going for greatness, the utmost possible” despite any and all setbacks.
“Being long time fans of the Descendents, we are pumped to be releasing this film. Filmage's powerful storytelling and craft will allow the film to really connect with the core audience and find new fans as well,” states Steve Beckman, Head of Content for FilmBuff.
