Dir. Jon Brewer. 2019, UK, 99 min
UK PREMIERE + DIRECTOR Q&A
In this highly anticipated feature-length documentary, the story of the original instigator of Rock & Roll is truly revealed, with unprecedented exclusive access to those who knew him best and were at the heart of his life and times. Despite his iconic status and the reverence for his talent shown by rock luminaries such as John Lennon, Keith Richards, Steven Van Zandt, Joe Perry, Nils Lofgren and Alice Cooper, all of whom feature here, Chuck Berry was a family man. He was a prolific craftsman of words and chords; a stunning combination of talent and charisma. Director Jon Brewer was personally chosen by the Berry Estate to produce and direct the inside story of the man who was the bedrock of Rock & Roll.
