Winner of the 2004 Sundance Documentary Grand Jury Prize, DiG! follows the rise of two talented musicians ? Anton Newcombe, leader of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and Courtney Taylor, leader of the Dandy Warhols, and dissects their star-crossed friendship and bitter rivalry. Directed by Ondi Timoner, the film was seven years in the making and was culled from over 1500 hours of footage. Fresh, stylish, raucous and raw, DiG! is a feat in rough and tumble filmmaking that examines age old conflicts about genius, creativity and can artists thrive in the world while maintaining their integrity.
