Everybody’s Dying Here

The democratic dream behind digital videomaking finds expression in Ali Gardoki's roughly made but genuine "Everybody's Dying Here," a personal look at Los Ultrasonics, one of Mexico's only all-girl rock bands, by band's guitarist, Gardoki. Pic examines highs and lows, personal mishaps, and added pressure of women proving themselves in hostile, male-dominated clubs.

The democratic dream behind digital videomaking finds expression in Ali Gardoki’s roughly made but genuine “Everybody’s Dying Here,” a personal look at Los Ultrasonics, one of Mexico’s only all-girl rock bands, by band’s guitarist, Gardoki. Pic examines highs and lows, personal mishaps, and added pressure of women proving themselves in hostile, male-dominated clubs. Lensing is as crude as the punk-esque singing, making docu all the better as a report from the Mexican pop underground, and a good pickup for latenight fest dates.

Though rock club organizer Nacho Pineda notes that everything from city codes to the music industry conspire against an underground rock scene, Los Ultrasonics are seen forging ahead, even as they struggle with co-founder Tere, who splits from the band. Gardoki serves up nice profiles of each member that show how their busy lives compete with their music. In the end, the band doesn’t stay together, but sheer pleasure of doing personal, non-commercial rock is pic’s — and band’s — legacy.
