Green Day Documentary Broadway Idiot To Premiere AT SXSW Festival

Green Day's upcoming documentary, Broadway Idiot, will make its premiere at this year's South By Southwest Festival.

Rolling Stone reports that the film tracks frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's entry into the world of musical theater, as he and veteran Broadway director Michael Mayer attempt to adapt the band's 2004 album, American Idiot, to the stage.

Broadway Idiot chronicles the progression of the show from conception to opening night. It's one of two Green Day films screening at SXSW, along with the band's other documentary, ¡Cuatro!, which premiered at this year's Winter X-Games. That doc follows the band during the writing and recording of their recent album trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!.

The 2013 South By Southwest Film Conference and Festival runs March 8-16 at various locations across Austin, Texas.
