20 Feet from Stardom
The Woodstock Theatre presents the 12th Annual Woodstock International Film Festival, featuring five Academy Award Nominated Best Foreign Films. The series continues with 20 Feet From Stardom on Saturday, September 20 at 4:30 & 7:00 p.m.
The backup singer exists in a strange place in the pop music world; they are always in the shadow of the feature artists even when they are in front of them in concert while they provide a vital foundation for the music. Through interviews with veterans and concert footage, the history of these predominately African-American singers is explored through the rock era. Furthermore, special focus is given to special stand outs who endeavored to make a living in the art burdened with a low profile and more personal career frustrations, especially those who faced the very different challenge of singing in the spotlight themselves.
This series runs through Tuesday, September 23 and will also feature The Great Beauty, Omar and The Missing Picture.
Tickets for all five films may be purchased in advance for $30. Single tickets for each feature are $7.50.
