No Alternative

Sponsored by 93.3 KZOZ and Melissa Smith, Nipomo SwapMeet and Mini Storage

William Dickerson offers up a personal coming-of-age drama based on his novel of the same name. He directed and co-wrote the screenplay based in the world of grunge-era teens in the early 1990s. Thomas Harrison (Conor Proft) is determined to start his own alternative band after the suicide of Kurt Cobain. It’s an obsession that blinds him to his sister’s worrisome, but exciting development as she takes on the persona of a ‘gangsta’ rapper. Their self-absorbed middle-class parents are equally blind to what’s really going on. Features music by Grunge-era standouts like Mudhoney, Failure, and Superdrag. 97 min. Drama. USA

Director William Dickerson will be in attendance from Friday through Sunday.
