Global Metal

Global Metal – Banger Films (Canada)

Recently completing filming in Jakarta and Bali for the documentary “Global Metal” (the follow-up film to “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey”), “Global Metal” explores the global spread of heavy metal music to countries such as Brazil, Israel, Poland, China, Indonesia, and Japan.

Produced by Victoria Hirst, “Global Metal” Director Sam Dunn found that although metal has been appropriated by mainstream culture at various points in its history, it is fundamentally an underground form of music, and discovered that despite the vast differences in geography and religion that separate these metal fans, they are unified by a need to create authentic cultural expression in a world rife with fads and mass-consumerism. In a sense they have become one tribe.
