Watch the trailer for L7: Pretend We’re Dead


This past Friday, fierce, feminist pioneers of American grunge punk, L7, premiered L7: Pretend We’re Dead at the prestigious DOC NYC Festival. The documentary was produced by Blue Hats Creative and directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Sarah Price (American Movie, The Yes Men, Summercamp), all of whom were present for a Q&A after the film alongside the band. Today, LA Weekly has shared the first exclusive clip of the film alongside an interview with frontwoman Donita Sparks. Tune in to LA Weekly’s Facebook page for a Facebook Live conversation at 3:15pm PST! Watch the exclusive clip here.


L7: Pretend We’re Dead is a culmination of the band’s re-ignited enthusiasm fueled by their fans’ outpouring of encouragement and support on social media when the band hinted at the idea of a documentary in early 2015. Offering particularly revelatory insight into the band’s 16-year career and eventual dissolution in 2001, the film features exclusive interviews with Exene Cervenka (X), Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Shirley Manson (Garbage, watch her full interview HERE), Louise Post (Veruca Salt), Joan Jett and more. L7 are taking over Los Angeles this week, with the film making it’s LA debut at the Vista Theatre (11/17) followed by two blazing blowout hometown shows at The Troubadour (11/20) and Echoplex (11/21).
