Descent into the Maelstrom:
The Untold Story of Radio Birdman

Director Jonathan Sequeira
Australia / 109 min. / 2017 / English (VOSE)

The odyssey against wind, tide, venue owners and marketing departments, by the pioneers of the Australian underground, and natural heirs of Detroit’s fiercest rock: Radio Birdman.

Considered untouchable legends of punk-rock garage in their own right, this film reveals overwhelming live footage from the early years (1974-78) of the electrifying Radio Birdman. A tale of pluck, perspiration and passion in which its members reveal the feeling of family and the “do it yourself” mantra that always propelled the band. And they don’t pull any punches when fessing up to how the shit hit the fan.
