Jim Jarmusch’s highly-anticipated documentary on The Stooges, Gimme Danger, will get two local screenings as part of the Sydney Film Festival program.
The film – which is only Jarmusch’s second documentary after 1997’s Year of the Horse about Neil Young and Crazy Horse – gets its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival today (May 19).
According to a Cannes press release: “Gimme Danger chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll bands of all time. Gimme Danger presents the context of the Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.”
Gimme Danger will screen twice in June during the 2016 Sydney Film Festival – at the State Theatre on June 17, and Event Cinemas George Street on June 19.
Gimme Danger will screen in Sydney at the State Theatre on June 17 at 9pm, and Event Cinemas George Street on June 19 at 3:45pm.
