Umbrella Entertainment has been a 100% Australian-owned and operated distributor for over 20 years. Their vast home entertainment catalogue features an extensive range of Australian classic, cult and exploitation films restored under the eyes of the original filmmakers. All sourced from national archives, underground collectors and local basements.

Stranded:

The 1970s Punk Rock movement: New York had The Ramones, London had Sex Pistols, Australia had The Saints...

STRANDED takes a look at the role four musicians from suburban Brisbane played in the explosion of one of the all time greatest musical movements.
Featuring interviews with the members of the band, including its leaders Ed Kuepper and Chris Bailey, as well as the likes of Sir Bob Geldof, former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra and Buzzcocks guitarist Steve Diggle, STRANDED examines how the oppressive and conservative government of Joh Bjelke-Petersen in the 1970s helped act as a catalyst for the rise of punk rock in Australia, and how as a result The Saints went on to be one of the most influential bands in the country.

Cosmic Psychos:

For 30 years, the Cosmic Psychos have blazed a trail of empty beer cans and busted ear drums around the globe with their quintessential Australian drawl and pounding punk rock songs.

With appearances (and party tricks) by Eddie Vedder, Mudhoney, The Melvins, Butch Vig, Hard-Ons, L7 (to name but a few), this doco is a full frontal assault on the senses. Loud, rugged and entertaining Blokes You can Trust shows all of the Psychos’ highs and lows riches and rip offs, line up changes and loss.

This is an extraordinary tale of Australia’s most unique cultural ambassadors, who sing about dead kangaroos, pubs and schnitzels. It’s a tribute to a country lad, a family man, still rocking and rolling, when most have retired to the couch.
