On Thursday, November 3, our music-in-film series, Music Driven, invited the great filmmaker Penelope Spheeris to the theater to talk her breakthrough documentary: The Decline of Western Civilization. Chatting it up with Nitehawk programmer John Woods, Spheeris discusses her troubled childhood, the punk-ness of safe-spaces and her pioneering work as a woman grinding in the film industry.
