DC History right here. Narrated by Henry Rollins, and premiering February 23rd at the AFI Silver Theater located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Discover the “other” Washington of the 1980s through the story of legendary graffiti artist Cool “Disco” Dan, a mysterious, ubiquitous presence during the height of go-go music, record crime rates and city-wide dysfunction. Few people knew every block of the city like Dan, and as intrigue about his identity grew, his illegal scrawl became a unifying force for a city on the verge of chaos. Narrated by DC native Henry Rollins and featuring interviews with “Mayor for Life” Marion Barry, civil rights activist Rev. Walter Fauntroy, punk rock historian and activist Mark Andersen and musicians Chuck Brown and Ian MacKaye, this documentary from filmmakers Joseph Pattisall and Roger Gastman (producer, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP) tells a fascinating chapter of DC history.

“In 2005, an unknown Irish boxer beat Mike Tyson in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Then he disappeared. Filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein rediscovers boxer Kevin McBride, raising his children in a gritty Boston suburb. Kevinʼs body is deteriorating, yet he compulsively continues to fight. This lyrical film finds a boxer at the end of his career – engaging in the Sisyphean task that is his life.”
Bill Plympton’s 7th animated film just got its bare bones funding on kickstarter, but needs some more help to really get it going. The legendary independent animator does all the drawings himself, with this one totaling over 40,000—each needing to be colored and cleaned. If all goes well, CHEATIN’ will be ready by September, “just in time to qualify for the Oscars!”
