Screenings

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 29 Aug 2011

Singing In The Shadow: The Children of Rock Royalty, 2003, 90 min

 

When you’re the child of a rock music legend, pursuing a music career of your own would seem like a no-win situation. You will always be judged against an impossible standard. Simply making a decent living – the goal of most musicians – will be seen as failure. And being good is never enough when your parent is great. Pg Trailer

 

 

In a candid and revealing film, nine children of music legends bare their souls: Julian Lennon, son of John Lennon; Louis Osbourne, son of Ozzy; Simon Collins, son of Phil; Sally Taylor, daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon; James Raymond – the previously unknown son of David Crosby; Sarah Lee Guthrie and Abe Guthrie, children of Arlo, grandchildren of the legendary Woody Guthrie; Jason Everly, son of Phil; Teddy Richards, son of Aretha Franklin; A.J. Croce, son of Jim; we also hear from David Crosby, Carly Simon, Phil Everly, Phil Collins, Arlo Guthrie and Aretha Franklin.

 

Plus: DOTS event presentation

 

Jean Oliver will speak briefly about her plans to have the community demonstrate Sept 10 for improvements to our mental health services. Here is Jean’s website. Sign up. Show support for a local mental health initiative. View: Promotion Videoand website

 

Here’s the Dec 2010 NB experience of a concerned parent which led to improvement to the system there. Connect the Dots story or read an article about the event.
