Converge frontman, artist, and co-owner of Deathwish Inc., Jacob Bannon has been profiled in a new short film documentary, entitled Rungs in a Ladder.
From the press release:
“A meditation on life, art, and purpose, the film centers around Jacob Bannon, an accomplished visual artist and frontman for hardcore band Converge, a group that has been carving its own iconoclastic path through the hardcore music landscape for over twenty years.
Bannon reflects on the formative events in his life as well as his continuing commitment to creation rather than destruction. A commitment that, he explains, is informed as much by anger as it is by survival. The documentary is a single continuous thought that sprawls in multiple directions but ultimately culminates in a sobering and uplifting statement of purpose.
Rungs in a Ladder is directed and edited by Ian McFarland. Production is by McFarland and Pecci.
