BV Presents ‘Music Driven’ films at Nitehawk Cinema (starting w/ AC/DC)
BrooklynVegan is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Music Driven signature film series at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. Stay tuned for what films we'll be showing each month, but meanwhile please join us for the April edition featuring a big screen, 35mm screening of AC/DC: Let There Be Rock.
From the film's description:
AC/DC live in Paris at what was arguably the height of their powers in December 1979. Following a format similar to Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same – concert footage with some interview material and fantasy/filmed sequences interspersed – this amazing movie record of AC/DC’s last tour with Bon Scott is simple, no holds barred, balls to the wall rock and roll. The group can literally do no wrong as they plow through the following set list:
Shot Down in Flames
Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be
Walk All Over You
Bad Boy Boogie
Highway to Hell
Girls Got Rhythm
Whole Lotta Rosie
Let There Be Rock
Along the way, we hear about the songwriting process, playing live, and living the rock star dream. It’s all so very drunken and delightful.
The Eric Dionysius/Eric Mistler-directed concert film will screen on 35mm on Wednesday, April 12 at 7:30 PM (one night only). There's an afterparty in Nitehawk's Lo-Res bar with DJ Blurry Murray "spinning big, bad, 70s rock on vinyl." For those about to BUY TICKETS we salute you.
Terrence Malick's "Song to Song", starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, and Natalie Portman is also playing now.
In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples – struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) – chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
Not only is "BV" a character in this one, we (also "BV") witnessed the BV character in action when this film was shooting at Fun Fun Fun Fest in 2011.
