I Used To Be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story
Go behind the screams in this delightful documentary about the pains and pleasures of being a Number 1 fan.
One Direction, Backstreet Boys, Take That and of course the original boy band themselves, The Beatles. At first glance are hordes of devoted screaming fangirls, but underneath is a passion for music, a catharsis for the soul and a burgeoning of new friendships.
Melbourne documentarian Jessica Leski interviews three generations of pop music lovers, whose insight into their obsessions is thoughtfully accompanied by animation, archival footage and home movies. Take the youngest, Elif, whose hysterics go viral, but whose love of One Direction helps her explore her passion for music in a strict Turkish household, or Sydneysider Dara, whose adoration for Take That’s Gary Barlow set off a chain reaction of life-changing events.
If you've ever secretly or openly loved a Boyband, or just want to know what all the fuss is about, don't miss this touching, funny and joyous celebration of the positive power of fandom.
Special Guests Jessica Leski and Dara Donnelly join us on the night
