Hard core logo

Edition 1996
92' - 1996 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: German, English
Director: Bruce McDonald Composer: Schaun Tozer With: Hugh Dillon, Callum Keith Rennie, John Pyper-Ferguson
This darkly humorous, faux documentary feature follows a legendary, defunct Vancouver punk band as it reunites for a tour of Western Canada. When Hard Core Logo's aging mentor, Bucky is shot in the leg, Joe convinces former band mates Billy, John and Pipefitter to put aside their differences and reunite for a benefit concert in Bucky's honour. The gig proves an enormous success, so much so that Joe urges the others to embark on a Hard Core Logo reunion tour. The guys say yes, the tour begins... and things start to fall apart. On stage, the Hard Cores are brilliant. Behind the scenes, however, old tensions erupt and the band members are forced to face the unpleasant fact that they can neither relive nor alter the past.
