Who Is Billy Bones?

Who Is Billy Bones?

"Who Is Billy Bones?" highlights the four-decade-long music career of legendary punk rock vocalist Steven “Billy Bones” Fortuna. Billy Bones was an early pioneer of the punk genre, fronting the 1977 Los Angeles punk band The Skulls with his snarling vocals and socially charged lyrics. The documentary features interviews with punk rock legends including Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt, Woolly Bandits member Christa Collins, Dr. Strange Records founder Dr. Strange and Bones' wife Christina Fortuna. The film includes never-before-seen footage of L.A.ís first punk music venue, The Masque, shot exclusively for the project, along with archive interview footage of The Masque's original proprietor, Brendan Mullen.

Grizzly Man

Pieced together from Timothy Treadwell's actual video footage, Werner Herzog's remarkable documentary examines the calling that drove Treadwell to live among a tribe of wild grizzly bears on an Alaskan reserve.

When one of the bears he loved and protected tragically turns on him, the footage he shot serves as a window into our understanding of nature and its grim realities.
