SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK


FRIDAY MAY 26 @8:00PM

SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK is a new documentary the delves into the colorful tales of rock 'n' roll, going deep into the mind of one of rock's greatest living photographers: Mick Rock.

Mick Rock — yep, that’s his real name — is the legendary rock photographer referred to as “The Man Who Shot the Seventies.” Known for his iconic images of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Queen, The Ramones, Blondie, Rocky Horror Picture Show, etc, he has shot over 100 album covers.
Rock, who directed Bowie’s “Life on Mars” music video, eventually became the go-to photographer for the glam and punk rock movements. His comments about the stars he worked with are priceless: He says that even before Queen made it big, Freddie Mercury “was already playing coliseums in his mind,” The Ramones were “the ugliest band around,” and Debbie Harry was so beautiful that “you couldn’t really take a bad picture of her.” The backstories of his photos are equally fascinating, such as his revelation that a Mercury pose on an album cover was inspired by a photo of Marlene Dietrich from Shanghai Express.

Presented in his own words, with spellbinding images and exclusive never-seen or heard archival film footage, audio recordings and original material, this film reveals an enigmatic Rock and his adventurous life both behind the camera and as an integral member of the artist’s entourage working with and shaping some of the most outrageous, recognized and accomplished musicians and personalities of the past forty years.
