The long-awaited doc on NYC's greatest experimental rock band of the '60s is finally coming out on Apple+ on October 15th, after premiering at NYFF.
From 9/11 to the pandemic, NYC EPICENTERS 9/11➔2021½ "is an epic chronicle" of the past twenty years in what Lee calls "the greatest city on this God’s earth."
Before white guys stormed the Capitol, they took Woodstock '99.
Last year, as the pandemic gripped the city, five young filmmakers documented how it affected their lives. The vignettes are now a short film called COVID Diaries NYC, debuting March 9th on HBO.
"The goal is to tell a very human story, through the lens of this historic bar and the community that exists alongside it."
The doc is called The Apollo, and aims to chronicle the venue's storied past.
'Very little oversight, too much alcohol, whistles blowing, people screaming, motors running — it was an energy. You knew you were jumping into the fire pit.'
"You can’t protect kids from what they’re going to come across. It seemed to me there was an opportunity to put something out there that is age-appropriate and not too scary..."
There's also a documentary about NYC bookstores, and one following incarcerated people trying to earn their college degrees in New York State.
Durst's incriminating final words in the film were apparently cut out of order.
'If I was a rational person, I would've dropped out of this race a long time ago.'
A new documentary will explore the complex history of the town, the riots that almost tore it apart, and the music scene which helped turn it back into a destination.
