Penelope Spheeris is often referred to as a ‘rock ‘n roll anthropologist’. Spheeris’ feature film debut was the 1979 documentary on the Los Angeles punk scene, “THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION” which was received with stunning and unanimous critical praise. In 1992, Spheeris directed her seventh feature, and first studio film, “WAYNE’S WORLD” at Paramount Pictures. She also documented The Ozzfest, America’s most successful summer concert tour, and the reunion performances of the original Black Sabbath. Read her full bio here.

Hear her talk with Laurie Kirby at FestForums November 22, 2019 about her life and career.
