Rudely Interrupted

The journey of a unique rock band, whose members all have physical or intellectual disabilities, takes them from the Melbourne pub scene to the stage of the UN building, New York.
Rudely Interrupted are a motley crew of six, including their manager, who are intrinsically funny with an infectious love of performing. They make rock 'n' roll history as the first band to play at the United Nations for International Disability Day. Most of them have never been outside their home state of Victoria and so the journey is daunting and exciting.
Their devoted fans at home know and love their infectious indie music that they produce with challenges like blindness, deafness, Aspergers, autism and Down syndrome. But for this film, the focus is not Rudley Interrupted's disabilities, but their amazing journey on the road as their adventure takes them to concerts in five cities across two continents.
It looks into these extraordinary individuals and how they cope with the pressures of living closely with each other and facing pressure and circumstances that would undo a professional outfit.
