Ministry Documentary To Get CMJ Screening
According to a press release, Gigantic Pictures will be screening “Fix: The Ministry Movie” — a documentary film “about the scariest and most extreme band ever,” which is certainly a matter very much up for debate — at the CMJ Music Festival on October 19.
Directed by Douglas Freel, the film tells the story of the band’s 1996 “Sphinctour” as a both cautionary tale and an insider’s look at life on the road with the most excessive and creative industrial band of all-time. Again, a statement that is very much up for debate.
“Al Jourgensen, along with Paul Barker and the guys they played with, paid the price, took no prisoners and along the way became one of the most influential industrial bands ever,” the release says.
“Fix: The Ministry Movie” features guest appearances by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys, and Korn’s Jonathan Davis.
A list of additional screenings follows after the jump.
