The film is title "Rock to Rock" and features Guelph biology professor Doug Larson and follows both him and fellow band members as they attempt to lay the groundwork for an entirely new genre of music – Eco punk.
"It's also a story about people," said Wills. "It's about father and son interactions, generation-spanning friendships and the unifying power of music. The band is such an interesting mix of personalities. Half of them are scientists and half are professional musicians, but things almost never divide along those lines."
The SharpCuts film festival itself is run by U of G graduate Tom Gofton and includes more than 17 hours of film, workshops and talks.
The festival opens October 17th and wraps up Oct. 19 with a variety of workshops. Workshops will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Ed Video and Synn Studios.
