Why see a concert more than once? How can a personal obsession with a rock band called The Cure, become a common pivotal anchor amongst people across the globe? This is the story of one, and the story of many. It’s about being a fan, claiming our part in rock and roll history, and embracing our identity with pride.
In the year 2000, I documented die hard Cure Fans as they set out on a quest to follow The Cure on a rumored final world tour. It was a summer of adventure and self-discovery. It was the beginning of the new millennium, and the end of modern life before social media. A very hot, hopeful, nostalgic ride.
Almost 20 years later, The Cure returned for another world tour, bringing thousands of fans, some now in their 40’s, back on the road. A deeply personal journey, PUSH tells a story of two groups of female fans as they follow the Cure at different stages in their lives and careers. Through the film these women are able to self-reflect and get to the core of why they are so passionate about this band - what the music meant to them then, and what it means to be back together now.
