loudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies

1hr 25min | 2007
In the history of modern American music there are few bands like the Pixies. Theirs was an unparalleled musical path, influencing countless others despite modest financial success. In 1992, their chief songwriter and vocalist Black Francis announced his intention to quit via a blunt facsimile. That, it seemed, was that. But to the amazement of everyone, the Pixies reunited in 2004. loudQUIETloud is the story of this unforeseen plot twist -- a deeply compelling portrait of four band members and their difficult, tense and ultimately triumphant return. From the first rehearsal to the final bow nearly one year later, the press-shy Pixies granted unprecedented access to award-winning directors Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin. The result is an insider's perspective on the Pixies, their relationships with family, fans and each other, and the combustible dynamic when the four members come together on stage.
