New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Girlie Action Media & Marketing) What happens when a generations ultimate anti-authoritarians - punk rockers - become society's ultimate authorities - dads? 'The Other F Word' is the revealing, funny, and touching film that tackles this question. With a large chorus of punk rock's leading men - including Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, and Rise Against's Tim McIlrath - the documentary follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band's anthem 'F--k Authority,' to embracing his ultimately authoritarian role in mid-life: fatherhood.

Director Andrea Blaugrund Nevins explains 'When I was a kid growing up in New York City, Punk Rockers were the people you crossed the street to avoid. So when Cristan Reilly, the film's producer, came to me with a book that her old friend, Jim Lindberg, the lead singer of the Southern California skate punk band Pennywise, had written about being a Punk Rock Dad, I was both repelled and intrigued.'

Producer Cristan Reilly adds, 'Punk Rock Dad. It's a great oxymoron. Andrea and I, who share, among many things, an ironic sense of humor, started with that very tiny but amusing kernel. We had no idea how much deeper the story would go, and we believe our film reflects the journey from funny concept to a series of moving realizations about rebellion, growing up, fathers, and fatherhood.'

Other dads featured in the film, which was Executive Produced by Morgan Spurlock &Jeremy Chilnick, include Art Alexakis (Everclear), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Tony Adolescent (The Adolescents), Fat Mike (NOFX), Lars Frederiksen (Rancid), skaterTony Hawk, and many others.

'The Other F Word' screens first in New York and Los Angeles, then hits theaters across the country in November and December. Screeners of the film are available upon request.
