The Moving Image of Rock

The Moving Image of Rock: Springsteen & I


Wednesday June 25, 2014
6:30 PM
As part of an occasional movie series entitled “The Moving Image of Rock” (showing acclaimed Rock ‘n’ Roll documentaries, dramatic movies and general motion pictures about Rock topics), the library is providing a screening of Springsteen & I (2013).

Bruce Springsteen has a huge fan base particularly here in his home state, so as a different take on doing a Rockumentary, director Baillie Walsh and producer Ridley Scott wanted to produce a documentary film solely from the fan’s perspective. Using only video footage submitted by Springsteen’s fans, Springsteen & I takes a fascinating look at this iconic artist through his fans’ eyes. Fans submitted everything from YouTube footage to more professional entries to describe Springsteen’s music’s effect on their own lives. Walsh delved through submissions from over 2,000 fans and struggled with the film, so it would not seem like just two hours of gushing in Bruce’s direction.

The film does not distinguish between hardcore fans, and what some might dub as ‘stalkers’ (One woman almost lovingly embraces her web cam during a taped Springsteen performance), but certainly is successful in showing what the Boss’s effect on his fan base has been. Some people appreciate his music, for others he is a role model or almost a Zen master or even as one review put it, a life coach, which helps to explain Bruce’s appeal far beyond his image and music.

Light refreshments will be served.

This program was made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library.
