About this product
- DescriptionNO ALTERNATIVE is a coming-of-age drama that drills a hole into the world of suburban American teenagers in the early 90's. Thomas Harrison is determined to start his own alternative band, an obsession that blinds him to what's either the mental collapse, or the eruption of musical genius, of his little sister, Bridget. Bridget boldly rejects her brother's music, and the music of an entire generation of slackers, by taking on the persona of an X-rated gangsta' rapper named Bri Da B. No Alternative probes the lives of rebellious kids who transition into adulthood via the distortion pedals of their lives in an era when the Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll ethos was amended to include Suicide in its phrase.
- Author BiographyWilliam Dickerson graduated from The College of The Holy Cross with a Bachelor's Degree in English and received his Master of Fine Arts in Directing from The American Film Institute. His debut feature film Detour, which he wrote and directed, was hailed as an Underground Hit by The Village Voice, an emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride by The Examiner, and nothing short of authentic by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, The Mirror, which opened YoFi Fest's inaugural film festival in 2013. He recently completed his third feature film, Don't Look Back, for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, No Alternative, was declared, a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in '90s music by Kirkus Reviews. His latest book, DETOUR: Hollywood: How To Direct a Microbudget Film (or any film, for that matter), is available now.
