NEWPORT, R.I. – David Bettencourt, an adjunct professor in the art department at Salve Regina University, has released his third feature documentary film, It's a Bash!
The 65-minute movie chronicles the long music career of Neutral Nation. Formed by three skateboarding friends from Attleboro, Mass., Neutral Nation have been one of the key bands in the Providence punk rock scene since 1982.
The film will premiere on April 30 at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence. Neutral Nation will then take the stage for a live performance.
Christopher Scanlon, a student at Salve Regina, did transcriptions for the film and is listed in the credits. Bettencourt met Scanlon while teaching a course on digital video production last fall.
