5 August – Joan Jett: bad reputation. A journey through the life and career of Joan Jett, from her early years as founder of “The Runaways” and her early collaborations with Kenny Laguna to her status as a rock icon.

August 12 – all i can say. Shannon Hoon, lead singer of rock band Blind Melon, filmed himself religiously from 1990 to 1995 with a video camera, recording up to hours before his sudden death at the age of twenty-eight. His camera was a diary and his closest confidant. In hundreds of hours of footage, Hoon has meticulously documented his life – his family, his creative process, his television, his band’s rise to fame and his struggle with addiction. He filmed the birth of his daughter and archived the politics and culture of the 90s, a time just before the internet changed the world.

Created using only her own images, voice and music, this rare autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Hoon’s last work, completed twenty-three years after his death. This event will include a Q&A with Danny Clinch after the film.
