Southern Documentary Fund is pleased to present THE ELEPHANT 6 RECORDING CO., directed by Chad Stockfleth.
An inside look at The Elephant 6 Recording Co., the ’90s rock collective that launched Neutral Milk Hotel, The Olivia Tremor Control, The Apples in Stereo, and other bands. Around 1985, a group of Louisiana high schoolers began experimenting with whatever random instruments and gear they could find. Influenced by psychedelia, and with little to distract them, they birthed a musical revolution.
Doors will open at 6:00pm, film will start at 7:00pm. There will be a post film discussion with Scott Spillane of Neutral Milk Hotel and The Gerbils immediately following the screening.
This event is presented by Southern Documentary Fund and in partnership with Merge Records and Carrboro Film Festival.
