Anthony Scarpa’s documentary “Betty Blowtorch and Her Amazing True Life Adventures” screens tonight, June 25th, at the ArcLight in Los Angeles.
For two years, director Anthony Scarpa followed the all-girl rock band Betty Blowtorch, documenting the band’s ferocious sound and dangerously low-tech pyrotechnic show, unaware of the turmoil and tragedy that he would ultimately capture. Betty Blowtorch quickly rose through the Los Angeles music scene and took to the road gaining a rabid fan base across the country. On the road through personal tragedy and the national tragedy of 911, Betty Blowtorch soldiered on, until Bianca was tragically killed in a New Orleans car accident. Scarpa captures their amazing story without ever letting you forget just how much the band rocked.
Anthony Scarpa will be in attendance at the screening.
