Sepultura will be holding the world premiere of their documentary Sepultura Endurance on Sunday, May 21, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA at The Regent Theater, with a Q & A session with the band will be held after. Go here for ticket information.
Sepultura Endurance follows their journey from their humble rural beginnings to the decades spent on the international stage, giving an in-depth look into their abilities to thrive within a changing metal landscape. The film is filled with rare archival footage, and features interviews with the likes of Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Scott Ian (Anthrax), and Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour).
Sepultura Endurance director Otavio Juliano states:
“I had been filming the band SEPULTURA for the better part of 2010-2016, a time of tension and triumph for the band celebrating 30 years. Nothing has been off-limits. The band gave me complete access, every door was open, I was never asked to leave.
Endurance is an honest portrait of SEPULTURA: part concert film, part testimonial to the power of music, part intimate insider-hang and great archival footage.
Ultimately, the film is a testament to the endurance required to make a documentary for almost seven years, taking itself 800 hours of footage to complete. When you’re filming cinema verite style, you’re following the story as it’s unfolding and you don’t know the destination. Sepultura Endurance has been a great journey.
