DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: Led Zeppelin Played Here (L.A. premiere, filmmaker Jeff Krulik in person!)

8/14/2014 - 7:30PM

Starting with the brilliant landmark ‘80s short Heavy Metal Parking Lot, Jeff Krulik has blazed a trail of idiosyncratic documentary works that turn our pop-culture world on its ear, in an ongoing, charming portrait of skewed Americana. We proudly welcome Jeff’s return to Cinefamily with his latest feature doc, examining a strange chapter in Maryland/D.C. rock lore. It’s 1969: Man lands on the moon, half a million strong show up at Woodstock, Sesame Street makes its debut — and a young Led Zeppelin perform in the gym of the Wheaton Youth Center on Georgia Avenue, in front of fifty confused teenagers. Or did they…? Krulik sets out to separate the truth from the rumors, re: the endearing local legend about the night of January 20, 1969, during the first Presidential Inauguration of Richard Nixon. Featuring interviews with rock writers, musicians, and fans, including several who claim they were there witnessing history that night. Plus, a look at one of the most amazing collections of Led Zep memorabilia ever. Jeff Krulik in person — plus, Q&A moderated by Michael Des Barres (of Little Steven’s Underground Garage on SiriusXM!)
Dir. Jeff Krulik, 2013, digital presentation, 90 min.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: Boyce & Hart - The Guys Who Wrote 'Em (Bobby Hart & more in person!)

8/7/2014 - 7:30PM

Just as the Sixties turned from black-and-white to Technicolor, they went from starving in New York City to stardom in Hollywood. Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart were best known for writing some of the Monkees’ most popular hits, but that’s really only the beginning. They were actors, activists, singers, songwriters and pop culture icons who helped lead a movement to lower the national voting age to eighteen. However, at the apex of their success, they were managed by a brilliant con artist who absconded with most of their earnings. Their lasting legacy became a brilliant catalog of songs, but more importantly, an enduring contribution to the American political landscape. They changed lives and they changed law. Following their journey from overnight successes to devastating failure, to being unlikely political crusaders, The Guys Who Wrote ‘Em skips the usual talking heads and lets B&H’s own home movies, photos, and personal archives tell the real story. Schedules permitting, Bobby Hart and Keith Allison in person — plus, Q&A moderated by Michael Des Barres (of Little Steven’s Underground Garage on SiriusXM!)
Dir. Rachel Lichtman, 2014, DCP, 82 min.

OFFSITE @ ACE HOTEL: Pulp - A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (Jarvis Cocker & filmmaker in person!)

8/5/2014 - 9PM

Co-presented by CINESPIA, FYF, DON’T KNOCK THE ROCK and ACE HOTEL. LOCATION: The UA Theater at The Ace, 929 S. Broadway, 90015. Doors 8:00pm, show 9:00pm.

If you’re unable to come to our Ace Hotel screening, Cinefamily will be showing Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets for a one-week engagement starting on Wednesday, November 26th. Tickets now available!

“Moving, funny, sweet, eccentric — and the reaction from the audience, well, it’s the kind of thing that makes you feel like you are smiling with your heart. Two people who I spoke with were moved to tears. How many rock docs can you say that about?” — Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds

Jarvis Cocker and filmmaker in person! Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of Sheffield, their hometown. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival)
Dir. Florian Habicht, 2014, digital presentation, 90 min.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: BMI Roundtable 2014

8/2/2014 - 1PM

Thanks to our good friends at BMI, Don’t Knock The Rock brings you another annual edition of its enormously popular and informative live chat about music in film, packed with a roster of industry experts. This roundtable explores both the perils and the innovative solutions around clearing music for your documentary, narrative film, TV or web show. In addition, we’ll get into how musicians can both save the day and get their foot in the door (through composing, or getting their songs placed), as they help service filmmakers and music supervisors in need.

Moderated by BMI musician/songwriter, actor and Sirius/XM DJ (“Little Steven’s Underground Garage”) Michael Des Barres, our panel includes: Danny Bramson (music supervisor, Almost Famous, Ray, Austin Powers, Jimi: All Is By My Side), Tiffany Anders (music supervisor, Like Crazy, Smashed, The End of the Tour, Fox TV’s You’re The Worst), Miriam Cutler (composer, American Promise, King’s Point), Denny Tedesco (director, The Wrecking Crew), James Ponsoldt (director, Smashed, The Spectacular Now, The End Of The Tour), Allison Anders (filmmaker, Grace of My Heart, Ring of Fire), Doreen Ringer Ross (BMI’s V.P. of Film & TV) and more! Join us for an invaluable afternoon of powerful information.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: The Possibilities Are Endless (L.A. premiere!)

Imagine your mind has been wiped: memories, knowledge, experiences, language, every word you ever spoke. If eventually you were able to find words, what would you say? First rising to rock prominence in the early ‘80s post-punk scene with his band Orange Juice, Edwyn Collins — a celebrated lyricist and frontman — could only speak two phrases after waking up from a severe stroke in 2005, which effectively deleted the contents of his mind: “Grace Maxwell” (his wife’s name), and “The possibilities are endless.” As Edwyn submerges himself in a landscape of memories, trying to unlock the story of his past, The Possibilities Are Endless places us directly inside Edwyn’s mind for a lyrical first-person journey, as he comes back from the brink of death back to language, music, life and love.

7/24/2014 - 10:45PM

Director Eric Green & producer Sarah Ogletree in person! “An in-depth exploration of the dense, sensuous, and extremely loud movement in ‘80s/’90s U.K. rock tagged “shoegaze” by the British press. Tracing its influences back to the Cocteau Twins’ ethereal ambiance and the Jesus and Mary Chain’s brash guitar sound, the film explores how bands like My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Lush fused these two disparate sounds together to create a distinctive, new musical style that furthered the genre’s ideals of sonic experimentation without the grandiose stage personas of traditional pop stars. First-time director Eric Green scores a coup by getting this notoriously press-shy bunch to open up about the class politics behind the genre’s poor treatment in the British press, MBV’s infamous falling-out with Creation Records, and how that band became sonic innovators whose music is only now truly receiving its due respect” (Seattle International Film Festival.) Almost a decade in the making, Beautiful Noise features interviews with members of Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine Ride, Slowdive, Chapterhouse, Lush, Curve, Swervedriver, Medicine, Pale Saints, Seefeel, AR Kane, Telescopes, Catherine Wheel and Flying Saucer Attack.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: The Case of the Three-Sided Dream (West Coast premiere) + Mabon "Teenie" Hodges: A Portrait of a Memphis Soul Original

“We hope you stay on the case. Don’t get inside the case ’cause if you get inside the case, they’ll shut the case up on you and you’ll never get out again.” — Rahsaan Roland Kirk

“Hendrix idolized him; Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore wore a T-shirt with his picture on it; everyone from the Animals’ Eric Burdon to Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood have given him props as one of the most inspiring jazz musicians of all time.” — Rolling Stone
Rahsaan Roland Kirk was a one of a kind musician, personality, satirist and windmill-slayer who despite being blind, becoming paralyzed, and facing America’s racial injustices — did not relent. His life’s work was exploring sound, as he made music on three horns simultaneously — but beyond that, he was an outspoken activist who started a political movement to get more exposure for jazz in America, particularly on TV. At the age of 40, at the apex of his career, Rahsaan suffered a stroke which left him half paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music, with the use of only one hand, literally until the day he died. Filmmaker Adam Kahan digs through the blind multi-instrumentalist’s early life, his musical career and his penchant for fuelling his far-out improvisations on wax with a sense of social justice. Filmmaker Adam Kahan in person! Plus, our program begins with Mabon “Teenie” Hodges — A Portrait of a Memphis Soul Original, the new half-hour doc on the late close collaborator of Al Green.
The Case of the Three-Sided Dream Dir. Adam Kahan, 2013, DCP, 88 min.
Mabon “Teenie” Hodges: A Portrait of a Memphis Soul Original Dir. Susanna Vapnek, 2013, digital presentation, 34 min.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: Try This At Home (world premiere, filmmakers & Allison Wolfe in person!)

7/17/2014 - 7:30PM

The relatively tiny town of Olympia, WA has been home to a staggering ratio of indie rock royalty: Bikini Kill, Beat Happening, The Gossip, Sleater-Kinney, Bratmobile, Unwound, Kimya Dawson and a huge list of others. In the summer of ‘99, three UCLA film grads struck out to document Olympia’s Yo Yo A Go Go festival: a landmark Olympia event which brought together local unknowns, acclaimed performers like Elliott Smith, the Make-Up and Negativland, plus then-emerging talents like Mirah, the Microphones, and the Mountain Goats. The definitive portrait of a once-in-a-lifetime musical event, Try This At Home provides a time capsule of an extraordinarily creative period in the Pacific Northwest, and captures performances both intimate and raucous. It’s a call for artists to reinvent themselves and engage with their communities — wherever they may be. Filmmakers in person. Plus, Alison Wolfe (Bratmobile, Cold Cold Hearts) will be here to DJ, and participate in the Q&A!

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK OPENING NIGHT: A Hard Day's Night (7/3)

harddays3_480_309
7/3/2014 - 7:30PM

The first 20 people who sign up for VIP couch seating will also get a new 50th Anniversary “A Hard Day’s Night” one-sheet poster! Directed with raucous, pioneering anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night reconceived the movie musical, exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, and remains one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time. Initially conceived as a low-budget cash-in quickie, this gale-force charmer, which hit theaters just three months after the first day’s filming, famously features The Beatles playing wily, exuberant versions of themselves. Presciently, it captures the astonishing moment when they both officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. And, the style that Lester lays down — one which VitaMixes together old-school slapstick, European art film techniques and TV commercial zazz — is the perfect compliment to the group’s own timeless energy. Bring a friend, a loved one, the parents, grandparents, the kids; round up the whole gang to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this exhilarating classic.
Dir. Richard Lester, 1964, DCP, 87 min.
