Event Cinemas George Street, Sydney
Co-presented by Groovescooter
for Queer Screen Film Festival
“The man who almost undoubtedly helped shape whatever music you are listening to right now” [Rolling Stone] is now the star of a terrific documentary. From Warhol’s Factory and a pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village to the top of Elektra Records and beyond, what Danny Says… “may sound funny, but it’s true”. If you’re a fan of The Ramones – like Danny was before he started managing them – you’ll not only get the reference, but also want to make sure you catch this film about one of the music industry’s most unconventional figures. It’s worth the entry price alone for Iggy Pop‘s straight-to-camera stories, the hilarious recounting of the night Jim Morrison and Nico met and tales of the day Danny organised the signing of the MC5 and The Stooges on the same day.
Also starring/featuring: Mx Justin Vivian Bond, Judy Collins, Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls, Wayne Kramer, Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye/Patti Smith Group, the wonderful John Cameron Mitchell, Jonathan Richman, John Sinclair + many more.
