William E. Badgley at IFFR
William E. BADGLEY made documentaries for network television before starting to make his own films. He is owner of The Documentary Center, a production office and Molasses Manifesto, a production company and record label. During his tour with his debut documentary Kill All Redneck Pricks (2012), he received a call from Jennifer Shagawat about her film on the band The Slits, a project which had come to a standstill with the passing of Ari Up, the vocalist of the band. Badgley took over the project, became homeless in the process but continued regardless. In 2017, the documentary Here to Be Heard: The Story of The Slits, premiered at BFI London Film Festival.
