Mutiny in Heaven: The Birthday Party - Poster

One of underground music's most notorious and influential bands

Directed by Ian White, Mutiny in Heaven is the story of The Birthday Partys ascent, apex and inevitable collapse is a thrilling tale of epic struggle, artistic genius and total dysfunctionality. Told in the groups own words, Mutiny in Heaven brings the bands story to the screen for the first time. This is a twisted tale of ascent, realisation and implosion whilst dealing with issues of artistic muse, creativity, addiction, fame, interpersonal conflict and the unique relationship between creative vision and self-destruction - all underpinned by the dark, wry humour of the individual band members. Utilising exclusive, incredibly candid interviews, a wealth of rare and unseen archives, original artwork, unreleased tracks, studio footage, animation and multimedia content - the film is as visually rich as it is narratively riveting - a revealing look back at its key members origins, dreams, hopes and motivations.
