Unreleased Documentary On Ozzfest '99 To Be Screened This Month

It's only been seen at film festivals previously.

Ozzfest 1999

We Sold Our Souls for Rock 'n Roll is a 2001 documentary by Penelope Spheeris that chronicles Ozzfest 1999. Despite being screened at film festivals, and even winning an award for "Most Popular Documentary" at the Melbourne International Film Festival in 2001, We Sold Our Souls for Rock 'n Roll has never seen a wider release… but it's at least finally getting a proper screening.

We Sold Our Souls for Rock 'n Roll is being screened at the David Geffen Theater in Los Angeles, CA on August 18. Tickets for the movie are available here, which also include a conversation with Spheeris. The following is a description of the documentary as posted on the Academy Museum website.

"The Decline of Western Civilization (1981) auteur Penelope Spheeris returns to the world of loud guitars and louder personalities with this under-screened late ’90s gem, which was produced by Sharon Osbourne. Following 1999's edition of Ozzfest, the nomadic metal festival founded and headlined by singer-heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne, Spheeris captures blistering, sweat-drenched sets from future multi-platinum megastars System of a Down, Slipknot, and Godsmack at their nü-metal infancy alongside heavy metal royalty Osbourne, Black Sabbath, and Slayer."
