Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey
Sam Dunn is a 30-year old anthropologist who composed his graduate thesis on the plight of Guatemalan evacuees. Recenly he has made a decision to research the circumstances of a various culture, one he has actually been a part of given that he was a 12-year old: the culture of heavy steel. Sam establishes out on a worldwide trip to learn why this music has been continually stereotyped, rejected and also condemned but is loved so passionately by its millions of followers. Along the way, Sam discovers metals' obsession with several of life's most provacative topics - sexuality, religious beliefs, violence and also death - and discovers some things about the culture that even he can't protect. Shot on place in the UK, Germany, Norway, Canada and also the United States, this documentary is the initial of its kind. It is both a defense of a long-misunderstood art type as well as a home window for the outsider into the spectacle that weighes steel.
