Making Our Own is a documentary by Adrianne Jorge about the experimental noise band Neptune. Out of Boston, Neptune travels the world making music with their handmade scrap-metal and electronic instruments. Jorge is a former member of the band and here she documents Neptune’s travails and triumphs in making their way in a fringe music subculture. In addition to Neptune, the film also features the bands The Ex, Roman Visionary Noise Band, Zu and more.

In addition to Making Our Own, there will also be a screening of Ross McLaren’s 1977 film Crash ‘n’ Burn, a documentary about Toronto’s first punk rock club. The film features performances by The Dead Boys, Teenage Head, and the Diodes.

Find out more about Making Our Own at Adrianne Jorge’s website. Making Our Own also recently screened at the first annual Oakland Underground Film Festival. Plus, the Underground Film Journal reviewed one of Jorge’s earlier films, Songs of Azores, at the 2001 New York Underground Film Festival.
