As the 23rd SXSW Film Conference and Festival prepares for kick off just a few weeks from now, a new documentary set to compete at the festival seems set to merge the best of the festival’s biggest sections, film and music. “Goodnight Brooklyn: The Story of Death By Audio” will celebrate its world premiere at SXSW in the Documentary Feature Competition on March 14.
Directed by one of the venue’s founders, Matt Conboy, “Goodnight Brooklyn” recounts the last days of the beloved Brooklyn music space, Death By Audio, which served the community for nine years only for the space to be overtaken by a billion dollar company.
