On slate this month for screening events at AMPAS – A trilogy of documentaries tailor-made for fans of the L.A. music scene in the early 80’s and two of the most fascinating characters to come out of the “Kennedy’s Camelot” era in American History.

Penelope Spheeris’ DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION films (I, II, and III) are a great walk down memory lane for music fans that came of age during the early 80’s in Los Angeles. 1 and 3 cover the early days of punk rock and 2, “the metal years” is an eye-opening look into the hair-bands that were struggling to make it on the famed Sunset Strip.

GREY GARDENS, you just have to see to believe. Funny, sad, hilarious and sometimes shocking, this classic Maysles Brothers film documents a branch of the Kennedy family tree most people don’t know even existed.
