First Trailer For The Go-Go’s Documentary Unveiled

Showtime has released the first trailer for a documentary about all-girl rock band The Go-Go’s.

The documentary chronicles the band’s growth from a group performing at local dive bars to one that performed at the iconic Madison Square Garden within a year of their debut.

Original members Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine, and Jane Wiedlin feature in the doc.

“We didn’t communicate,” says Carlisle in the trailer about challenges they faced as a group. “And when we did communicate, we didn’t do it in a respectful way.”

“We were pretty crappy in the beginning,” lead guitarist Caffey says. “But we had these songs that were just coming together.”

Alison Ellwood, who previously directed History of the Eagles and Laurel Canyon: A Place in Time, directed the documentary.

“I’ve always been a huge Go-Go’s fan,” Ellwood said in a press release. “When the band asked me to direct this film, I was thrilled. Like a lot of people, I thought of them as this wonderful, bubbly, all-girl pop band from L.A. What I’ve discovered is a much more complex and deeper truth.”
