Rungs in a Ladder (2013)
13min · Documentary, Short, Drama · 22 January 2013
A meditation on life, art, and purpose, 'Rungs in a Ladder' centers around Jacob Bannon, an accomplished visual artist and front man for hardcore band Converge, a group that has been carving its own iconoclastic path through the extreme music landscape for over twenty years. Bannon reflects on the formative events in his life as well as his continuing commitment to creation rather than destruction. A commitment that, he explains, is informed as much by anger as it is by survival. The documentary is a single continuous thought that sprawls in multiple directions but ultimately culminates in a sobering and uplifting statement of purpose.
