BREAKING A MONSTER depicts the adventures of three black teenagers who play the whitest form of music imaginable – namely metal. Director Luke Meyer has followed Malcolm, Alec and Jarad from their humble beginnings as prepubescent Youtube curiosities to a million dollar record contract with Sony and gigs at South By Southwest and Coachella. Examining such themes as ethnicity, identity, talent and determination, Meyer has made an entertaining and thought-provoking film about what it takes to make and maintain a career in the music business today.
