Directed by Ian White, Mutiny in Heaven is the story of The Birthday Party's ascent, apex and inevitable collapse is a thrilling tale of epic struggle, artistic genius and total dysfunctionality.
This is a twisted tale of ascent, realisation and implosion whilst dealing with issues of artistic muse, creativity, addiction, fame, interpersonal conflict and the unique relationship between creative vision and self-destruction - all underpinned by the dark, wry humour of the individual band members.
Utilising exclusive, incredibly candid interviews, a wealth of rare and unseen archives, original artwork, unreleased tracks, studio footage, animation and multimedia content - the film is as visually rich as it is narratively riveting - a revealing look back at its key members' origins, dreams, hopes and motivations.
