Bad Brains off and on legendary frontman, Paul “HR” Hudson, is the subject of documentary filmmaker James Lathos’ Finding Joseph I: The H.R. from Bad Brains Documentary. MVD Entertainment Group will be guiding the DVD release to market on Friday, Nov. 3.
Through interviews with Hudson as well as HR’s fellow musicians and contemporaries, Lathos is able to piece the picture of a complicated artist, who freely ranges between “hardcore” punk rock and reggae (as a solo artist, HR Human Rights).
Interview sessions include the likes of Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye, Fishbone's Angelo Moore, guitarist Vernon Reid of Living Colour, Madonna’s manager and Maverick Records chairman, Guy Oseary and both Hudson’s brother, Earl Hudson (the drummer for Bad Brains) and Hudson’s wife, and in many ways his savior, Lori.
This award-winning documentary (Best Documentary Feature – Philadelphia Independent Film Festival; Grand Jury Prize Best Documentary – San Francisco Independent Film Festival, etc.) is a must for music fans, especially fans of Paul “HR” Hudson and Bad Brains.
