ZAPPA – coming this Friday 11/27

SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRTUAL MANTRA OF ROCK is a deep look into the mind of one of rock’s greatest living photographers: Mick Rock. Rock’s work with some of the most accomplished personalities of the past forty years – David Bowie, Queen, Blondie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop – created many of the images that would come to define them. Presented in his own words, Rock takes us through his journey from the glam rock shimmer of London, through the snarl of NYC punk and into the new millennium, combining a portrait of the man who did the work, with a look at what the work did to the man. Rent it here.
Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll tells the story of how Western rock and roll came to Cambodia in the ’60s and ’70s and influenced a generation of musicians to create their own hybrid form of Cambodian rock and roll. When the Khmer Rouge took power in 1975 and wiped the country clean of all Western-influenced music, the musicians who made this music began to disappear. This documentary spotlights the creativity of those musicians and their story. Rent it here.
