"HIT SO HARD" chronicles the life and near-death story of a hard-hitting lesbian drummer whose talent (and friendship with struggling musician Kurt Cobain) unexpectedly led her into the darkness of addiction and betrayal. Transcending the “nevermind” generation, never-before-seen footage of Hole's chaotic rise reveals Patty Schemel’s harrowing survival and triumph.

Back in 2007, Patty brought over 40 hours of archival footage she shot while on tour with HOLE for the LIVE THROUGH THIS tour to director P. David Ebersole. She shot the tape on hi-8 and was afraid it would disintegrate soon, so she asked Ebersole for advice. Soon, the two of them were transferring the tapes and watching the footage together and the seed of the documentary was born. Ebersole spent the next few years interviewing Patty's band-mates, friends, fans, social critics and other women drummers to craft "HIT SO HARD: The Life & Near Death Story of Drummer Patty Schemel."

At this stage, we have picture lock and are working with Roddy Bottum (FAITH NO MORE, IMPERIAL TEEN) on the score. We are currently fundraising in order to finish the film. What does that mean? Music, color correction, legal clearances, sound mix, etc.

That's where you come in! Thanks for taking the time to read this & watch our trailer. We appreciate your support and we can't wait to ROCK YOU!

Check out our premiums from our friends and we'll continue to update them as more come in! Thanks again for your generous support & rocking the doc!

As you know, we can't do this without our friends, so show them some love too! Also, after your generous pledge, please check out the websites of our generous friends who helped us with premiums:
