Rachel Lark, Warm Bloody and Tender
San Quentin's Giants
Created for The New York Times Op-Docs, a film about a prison baseball league, and inmates who find new meaning in the game.
An impressionistic look at life on the road with a comedy band in pursuit of an elusive dream. Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits are the hardest working band that you have probably never heard of. They formed in a strip mall-infested Bay Area suburb that somehow spawned the likes of Primus, Metallica and Green Day, making it the per capita leader of two modern American hallmarks: fast food and rock n' roll. Then the '90s happened. As Seattle churned out grunge music, California loosed a marketable version of punk. As teenagers, band founders Dan and Corbett watched as many of their peers exploded into mass popularity. 18 years later, the duo is still fighting for their dream of being able to survive on their art.
