TRENCHES OF ROCK
WINNER: BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY
Director: Paul Michael Bloodgood
Screening 9/30/17 @ 4:00 p.m.
TRENCHES OF ROCK depicts the career of 1980s heavy metal band BLOODGOOD, who was targeted not only by a mainstream music industry that found their blatant use of faith-based lyrics an unfitting marriage with heavy metal, but also by Christians who believed their music was the work of the devil. BLOODGOOD became a trailblazer of “Christian Metal,” touring the world and facing adversity head-on while confronted by death threats, picketers and protests of these "metal missionaries.”
