KILLING THE JOKE: THE JOHN BECHDEL STORY
Directed and Produced by Darryl Hell for Furnace Records

Most people say that he lives "the life" without understanding the immense sacrifices that's made behind the scenes. His trademark smile and laugh function as medicine for the elements in his life that are sometimes killing the joke. Framed as a "day-in-the-life" of 36-hours on tour in Ministry from the meet & greet before playing The Fillmore in D.C. to leaving New York City after playing Irving Plaza, this documentary is a thrill ride through the life of John Bechdel, those in and connected to his life and career; the world travelers and those behind the scenes who share his struggle to live their lives at all odds...on their terms.

KILLING THE JOKE: THE JOHN BECHDEL STORY SPECIAL ISSUE DVD
* Pre-ordered item - No Longer Available

SPECIAL ISSUE DVD 3-DISK SET [Limited Edition - U.S. Domestic Orders Only]
3-disk set includes 4 hours of interviews not included in the digital release. A must for collectors.

Because Vimeo does not enable us to sell outside the U.S. exclusively, we are delaying the release date of the International version to allow the DVD version to have a window of exclusivity. The price also reflects that the Special Digital Issue is a 6-hour feature production, but does not include the physical packaging that adds value to the DVD version.

[FYI about the December 28th release date: On December 28, 1968, The Beatles went to No.1 on the US album chart with the The White Album the group's 12th US No.1 album. A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed, which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's earlier Sgt. Pepper's. No singles were issued from the album in Britain and the United States, the songs 'Hey Jude' and 'Revolution' originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. We felt the date was fitting because JB is such a life-long fan of The Beatles.]
