Swinging in the Shadows -- Venice West and the LA Scene -- A “Wild” History of the California Beat Era
$10 at the door, to benefit Mary Kerr & Swinging In The Shadows
Venice West and the LA Scene brings out what developed in Southern California among the underground artists and poets during the 50s. It’s the story of the early Ferus, Syndell Studio, Gas House, Venice West Café. Most of all, it’s about the individuals who made it happen - told in the words, images and expressions from those that lived it. The film now has a new soundtrack of compositions by JIMMY Z, THEO SAUNDERS, BEN and SI PERKOFF. Their excellent jazz adds another element of originality to this unique documentary.
The producer, MARY KERR and editor, ELAINE TROTTER will be on hand after the screening for a Q&A session.
