VIDEO: CORBETT REDFORD ON GREEN DAY & TURN IT AROUND: THE STORY OF EAST BAY PUNK

Corbett Redford’s documentary Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk made its debut at the 2017 San Francisco SFDoc Festival. The film is a rich and dense chronicle of punk music from San Francisco’s East Bay region that gave birth to bands like Green Day and others. Green Day is the executive producer of the film.

Before launching the film project Corbett got some friendly guidelines from Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong. These guidelines were: don’t get lost in the acrimony, don’t mystify nostalgia and include diverse voices. The film is a celebration of that spirit and how 924 Gilman, a non-profit organization played a key role in providing a safe haven to hundreds of musicians and young people over the course of 30 years.
