Heavy metal parking lot to appear in MOMA documentary fortnight (or rent it from your local video store).
Heavy Metal Parking Lot: 15th Anniversary Tour. 2001. USA. Directed by Jeff Krulik and John Heyn. A sixteen-minute video documentary shot in a parking lot in suburban Maryland, right before a 1986 concert by the English hard-rock band Judas Priest, Heavy Metal Parking Lot vividly captures a moment in pop culture–the 1980s version of a rock 'n' roll ritual, with kids hanging out, getting loaded, and screaming "Priest!" at the top of their lungs. For the fifteenth anniversary of their popular underground success, the filmmakers have assembled a compendium of related shorts. Filmmaker Krulik present. 90 min.
