In 1998, The Decline Of Western Civilization Part III hit a few select theaters, but was never released on home video until now. With fleeting moments of hilarity and youthful exuberance, at its core it is a disturbing social commentary about kids who have left home due to abuse, neglect, and alienation. Director Penelope Spheeris personally financed the film, bringing to the screen the real-life squatter lifestyle and angry rejection of mainstream society two decades after she wrote and directed the like-themed cult classic Suburbia. Now with a new 2K digital restoration, there are performances by Final Conflict, Litmus Green, Naked Aggression and The Resistance. Decline III won the Freedom of Expression award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. Director Penelope Spheeris is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)
