On stage, people knew her as a wild-child who fell into a life of drugs, prostitution, mental illness, and arrests. Behind the controversy, provocative acts, and addiction, laid a visionary artist who found comfort only in music. There was much more to Marian Anderson than sex, drugs, and punk rock. Last Fast Ride: The Life, Love, and Death of a Punk Goddess is a cautionary tale of a beautiful soul born into a life of torment and tragedy. Blended with interviews, photos, and archival footage, this absorbing documentary features pop culture icon Henry Rollins, Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, Daniel deLeon, Danielle Santos Bernal, and more.
Marian Anderson penetrated the San Francisco’s underground punk scene in the early 90’s where she pushed the limits with tawdry acts on stage. After fronting various punk bands, Marian and Daniel deLeon formed an all-girl hard core punk band, ‘The Insaints’ – and so began the demise of her intense tumultuous path.
The film, which premiered at the 2011 Slamdance Film Festival, Last Fast Ride: The Life, Love, and Death of a Punk Goddess, will make its nationwide premiere Digitally and on DVD, February 21, 2012 by Virgil Films & Entertainment.
