The Chicago International Movies & Music Festival just went online with their complete lineup for this year’s fest. Looks like a doozy.
Some of the highlights include the screenings of Les Blank’s classic docs Spend It All, Dry Wood, Dizzy Gillespie and Always for Pleasure with Blank making a live appearance. The very-well received doc Charles Bradley: Soul of America, follows the soul singer’s decades-long struggle to be heard. Eccentric country music man Bobby Bare, Jr. is profiled in Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost and makes an appearance with the Lawrence Peters Outfit at The Hideout. The crew from the cult movie hit The Scenesters explain how we came up with celebrated holidays in the comedy Holiday Road. One Night Stand injects actors, directors, composers and writers into a whirlwind experiment for 24 hours to produce four short musicals in lightning-fast speed. Awe Dub Sessions and Impala Sound will provide hella fine Dub, Roots and Dancehall Vinyl at Rodan, along with crazy visuals from For Your Height Only and Danger: Diabolik. (Support Odd Obsession Movies!).
And, of course, TUGM will proudly premiere Sci Fi Sol onto the world with a live score performed by Melody Nife, Saturday night April 14 at 10pm* at Wicker Park Arts Center.
