SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK

+ Q&A with Mick Rock, WED 12 JULY
Dir: Barnaby Clay
United States / 2016 / 98mins

★★★★ "An invaluable glimpse into the private thoughts of rock legends." - Slant Magazine

Forming friendships with Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and David Bowie in the 1970’s, photographer Mick Rock produced a series iconic images which would come to define the era. Over the years, he shot everyone from Queen and Blondie to The Ramones and The Talking Heads, confirming his status as an inimitable and iconic part of rock ‘n’ roll history.

“I’m not after your soul, I’m after your f***ing aura” - Mick Rock

With a wild array of personal stories, revelations and a rich archive of images, footage and audio recordings – many of which have never been heard or seen before – director Barnaby Clay unfolds Rock’s remarkable life in this dazzling and delirious portrait of one of rock’s greatest living photographers.
