New Hampshire filmmaker Marc Dole will screen his documentary IN DANGER OF BEING DISCOVERED at the Rockin' Docs Mini Film Festival at Red River Theatres in Concord on Sunday, June 15 at 2 p.m.
IN DANGER OF BEING DISCOVERED (NR/2011/100 min.)
Set against the backdrop of a flourishing mid 90's music scene, IN DANGER OF BEING DISCOVERED examines what it means to be successful in the music business through the musicians themselves. Using archival footage, live performances and interviews with band members today, we get an insiders look at what it meant to be in the right place at the right time but just miss out on "making it" nationally. In what could have been the "next Seattle", some dreams were realized, some were lost and the magic that binds every local music scene in every small town was tested. Redefine your definition of success and realize it was a special time where cities like Portsmouth, NH were all "In Danger of Being Discovered."
There will be a Q&A with director Marc Dole after the film.
And screening at 4:30 p.m.:
TURN IT UP! (NR/2013/82 min.)
TURN IT UP! is the STORY of the electric guitar, from the invention in the 1930s to its golden years, right through the phenomenon of the Guitar Hero video-game and digital guitars of the future. But, it's also a series of guitar STORIES hosted by Kevin Bacon, where we'll meet all kinds of people from rock stars like Slash, B.B. King, Albert Lee, Steve Lukather, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Paul Stanley (KISS), John 5 (Rob Zombie), Skunk Baxter (Doobie Brothers/Steely Dan), Nancy Wilson (Heart), Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains), and many more artists, to congressmen, CEOs, and teenage virtuosos, to try to understand their emotional connection to their guitars.
New Hampshire's very own Paul Hodes is featured in the documentary and will be there for a post-screening Q&A.
Both films are hosted by Scott Solsky of the Granite State Music Festival.
Tickets are available online at the Red River Theatres website at http://redrivertheatres.org, or at the box office.
