All Things Must Pass premieres at SXSW Film Festival


Back in 2011, Colin Hanks started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a project, which was to make a documentary based on the rise and fall of Tower Records. Almost 4 years later, Colin will finally be able to premiere his project, which will be at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival.


Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with two hundred stores, in thirty countries, on five continents. From humble beginnings in a small-town drugstore, Tower Records eventually became the heart and soul of the music world, and a powerful force in the music industry. In 1999, Tower Records made $1 billion. In 2006, the company filed for bankruptcy. What went wrong? Everyone thinks they know what killed Tower Records: The Internet. But that’s not the story. All Things Must Pass is a feature documentary film examining this iconic company’s explosive trajectory, tragic demise, and legacy forged by its rebellious founder, Russ Solomon.
