All show details listed below.

Pentagram’s film Last Days Here world premier confirmed for the 2011 SXSW Film Festival Last Days Here tells the story of Bobby Liebling, lead singer of the cult hard rock/heavy metal band PENTAGRAM. Frozen for decades in his parents’ basement, Bobby’s music is finally discovered by the heavy metal underground. With the help of Sean “Pellet” Pelletier, his friend and manager, Bobby attempts to overcome years of addiction, loneliness, and broken dreams. Intimate, raw, and unexpectedly funny, Last Days Here portrays the unbelievable journey of a man at the crossroads of life and death.

The film was produced by 9.14 Pictures, an independent production company that specialized in documentary films. The film was directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton and produced by Sheena M. Joyce. The company’s filmography includes last year’s critically acclaimed THE ART OF THE STEAL, TWO DAYS IN APRIL and ROCK SCHOOL.

Last Days Here is in the Featured Documentary competition and is up against seven other documentaries, which were chosen out of the 808 submitted.
