The first trailer for the new documentary The United States of Insanity has been released.
Directed by Tom Putnam & Brenna Sanchez, The United States of Insanity chronicles the struggle of the Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos to not be classified as a gang by the FBI. Per Deadline:
“[T]he film centers on Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, the rappers who make up ‘the World’s Most Hated Band,’ who find themselves as unwitting warriors for the First Amendment. With the help of the ACLU, which filed a federal lawsuit against the FBI, the band fights to uncover the reasons behind the designation and to be removed from the gang list as their fans begin losing their jobs, have their children put into protective custody and face jail time — all because of their musical tastes.”
The United States of Insanity will make its debut at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX on September 28. Strike Back Studios and Fathom Events will then team for nationwide theatrical screenings, with bonus ICP concert footage, on October 26.
You can watch the trailer below. It features a brief shot of a 2009 MetalSucks article by co-founder Vince Neilstein around the 26-second mark.
