Director Chris Metzler on his Fishbone documentary, Everyday Sunshine
Documentarian Chris Metzler‘s choice to do a documentary about skafunkrastrapunkers Fishbone should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his earlier work. When you’ve done a film entitled Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea — about the infamous dead lake in California — narrated by John Waters, a logical next step is covering a genre-jumping bunch of freak flag-waving musicians. Metzler’s film with co-director Lev Anderson is called Everyday Sunshine, and it plays this weekend at the Screenland Crossroads. We recently spoke with Metzler by phone about the filming and production of Everyday Sunshine. If there’s anything we missed, you’ll have a chance to speak with Metzler as part of the Q&A that follows each screening this weekend.
