I’ve never understood the phenomenon of tattoos and always pondered how those covering their body with them would feel a decade or two later. That question and more is tackled in the punk rockers-turned-fathers documentary The Other F Word. Director Andrea Blaugrund Nevins follows around such rockers as Blink-182′s Mark Hoppus, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath as they make the transition from stage to nursery. We saw it at SXSW and you can read our positive review here with the new trailer below.
What happens when a generation’s ultimate anti-authoritarians — punk rockers– become society’s ultimate authorities — dad’s? With a large chorus of Punk Rock’s leading men – Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath- The Other F Word follows, Jim Lindberg, 20-year veteran of skate punk band, Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band’s anthem, ‘Fuck Authority’, to embracing his ultimately pivotal authoritarian role in mid-life, fatherhood.
The Other F Word hits theaters on November 4th via Oscilloscope Pictures.
