Hey Music Film Fans,
The Summer Music Film Festival 2014 comes to the Music Box on August 15th-19th! Co-presented by Sound Opinions, this festival showcases the very best music films, documentaries, and concert footage, for the fourth year in a row.
Highlights of the 2014 festival include 30th anniversary screenings of Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense and Prince’s Purple Rain, and 50th anniversary screenings of The Beatles’ A Hard Days Night, returning after sold out screenings in July!
Two films with Chicago connections will screen and are scheduled to have their creators in attendance. The 78 Project Movie is a journey across America to record today’s musical artists as they perform the early American songs that inspired a century of popular music — exactly as they were originally recorded, instantaneously, on one-of-a-kind 78rpm lacquer discs. Director Alex Steyermark, a former Chicago resident, will discuss his film and The 78 Project web series.. Rubber Soul reconstructs portions of two historical interviews of Yoko Ono and John Lennon from 1970 and 1980 and is the creation of Evanston native and Northwestern alumni Jon Lefkovitz.
