Austin, TX – So what is exactly ‘the other F word? A documentary directed by Andrea Blaugrund aims to answer that question by following a handful of aging punk rock musicians, and rebellious figures, who over the course of their lives decided it was time to settle down and take on the challenge of, fatherhood.

The film follows Jim Lindberg formerly of Pennywise, and features interviews with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Tony Hawk, and more, as they open up about family life, and conforming to the institution that they once rebelled against.

The Other F Word with it’s focus on musicians, seems fitting for SXSW. It will screen at the following times:

SAT 03/12 @ 8:30 PM (Alamo South Lamar – 1120 South Lamar Blvd) 

MON 03/14 @ 9:00 PM (State Theatre – 719 Congress Ave)” 

THU 03/17 @ 4:30 PM (Vimeo Theatre at ACC -500 East Cesar Chavez Street, Austin, TX)
