San Francisco was the epicenter of the American rave scene and witnessed some legendary events that began in the early ‘90s. These all-night electronic-music dance parties attracted a diverse cross-section of people. Culturally iconic and socially important, the parties became a catalyst in the lives of so many of the people who experienced them.
By weaving together interviews shot at previous locations where these parties took place with archival footage, contemporary B-Roll and time-lapse photography, we are creating a deep and poetic film that examines the do-it-yourself mentality and psychedelic community spirit that the San Francisco Bay Area rave scene epitomized. We believe that the subject matter is as socially and culturally significant today as it was almost 20 years ago, making for a fascinating story that will resonate with a broad global audience.
