Directed by Isaac Olsen

Washington 2017 78 mins. In English

Using a flurry of fast paced editing and re-imagined vignettes harkening back to the glory days of MTV and the Alt-Rock era, Olsen tells the tale of a sentinel player in the Seattle music scene. Dick Rossetti, founder of the band Squirt, transformed into a DJ on Seattle’s 107.7, “The End,” before getting the corporate boot. Rossetti plays figures from his family in the story of his upbringing in an Eastern Washington town. From rock he was birthed, to rock shall he go.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
