An evening of short documentaries about music
White Lines and The Fever: The Death of DJ Junebug (Travis Senger, 2010) is the story of Junebug's double-life as a DJ and drug dealer. Recalling the Bronx in the early 1980s, this documentary explores the old-school days of hip-hop and the dangerous underworld at the legendary Disco Fever. Never-before-seen footage and interviews with Kurtis Blow, DJ Hollywood and Sal Abbatiello tell the tragic story of one of the greatest DJ's ever.
Jacob Young’s Dancing Outlaw (1991) is probably the best film ever made in West Virginia and that rare PBS documentary to become a cult classic. The film follows Jesco White, a singer/dancer/Elvis-impersonator/drug addict from rural Boone County, as he pontificates on life, family, and culture. (60 minute program)
