The Moving Image of Rock: Springsteen & I
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.
Light refreshments will be served.
This program was made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library.
