NYC screening of documentary on fans of Morrissey/The Smiths

This Sunday, Feb 26th at 6 and 8pm, Anthology Film Archives will be screening Is It Really So Strange?.

Filmmaker William E. Jones interviews contemporary fans of The Smiths and Morrissey. It is a fascinating aspect of youth culture in Southern California that most of the audience listening to English pop music of the 1980s is Latino, sons and daughters or grandchildren of immigrants from Mexico. This phenomenon has received attention from the mainstream media, but IS IT REALLY SO STRANGE? is the first documentary that allows the fans themselves to speak at length about their lives, their loves, and their brief encounters with their idol, Morrissey. They show their bedroom shrines, talk about the nostalgic fashion of the scene, and reveal the private passions that compelled them to worship the Irish working class boy from Manchester who became a great pop star and moved to Los Angeles.
In related news, Golinko Kordansky Gallery is having "an exhibition of 36 new black and white photographs from an ongoing series by William Jones. The opening reception will be on Friday, February 27th from 6 to 9PM. The artist will talk at the gallery on Saturday, April 3rd at 3PM."

Found (of course) HERE on Morrissey-solo.

You are rapidly replacing Pitchfork on mine and my friend's favorites.

I love the first song on the Animal Collective CD. Sounds like it could have been recorded in a yurt by a herd of braying llamas. Awesome.

Keep up the great stuff!

This news reminded me of a Chuck Klosterman article called Viva Morrissey! for Spin Magazine. Is this documentary inspired in any way by that article or is it just a coincidence?
