Fans Gone Wild

I curated a series of films about extreme fandom that will be showing over Labor Day Weekend at Anthology Film Archives. These are all pretty powerfully great movies, and all will be shown with accompanying shorts (including some of the "Parking Lot" films). There's more info at the Anthology site, but quickly then:

Sept. 3 - Dream Deceivers: Documentary about two boys who attempted suicide (one successfully) after believing they were told to by a Judas Priest record, and the lawsuit against the band that followed.

Sept. 4 - KISS Loves You: Extreme fans of my first favorite band.

Sept. 5 - For the Love of Dolly: Parton fans and the annual pilgrimage to Dollywood. Director Tai Uhlmann will introduce the movie.

Sept. 6 - Almost Elvis: Stiff competition at an Elvis impersonator contest.

I'll be there for some of them. Check 'em out.
