Finding Joseph I

This first James Lathos film offers a sensitive and moving portrait of HR (real name Paul Hudson), the energetic and dazzling singer of the Bad Brains, a hardcore punk band from Washington D. C. in the early '80s. In the spirit of the artwork of their eponymous album, the Bad Brains struck the punk scene with their P. M. A. (positive mental attitude) message during mythical performances, mixing reggae and hardcore punk. But the singer's complex personality, his idiomatic behavior, gradually overshadowed his fame and nourished many legends. Shaman, traitor, crook, genius, madman, who is HR? What happened to him?
