The Film Festival is due to announce this years lineup any day now, cross your fingers for this gem making an appearance...


NEW YORK DOLL...
"Mild-mannered, 55-year-old Arthur Kane endures Los Angeles’ bewildering public transportation system each day to and from his job at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint’s Family History Center library. Though a tad frayed-at-the-edges Arthur is neatly dressed in a suit and tie. Thirty years later, and a lifetime removed from his former alter ego, “Killer Kane,” the one time statuesque bassist of 70s gender-bending, glam rock pioneers, The New York Dolls, Arthur blends effortlessly into his current environment, despite the fact that he’s speaking to a camera crew who tags along with him on his daily routine..." Link to info, trailer, etc.


RIP Desmond Dekker -the first reggae star to hit big on the international scene, with his hit The Israelites, back in 1969. His self-penned debut single hit number one in Jamaica, back in 1963.
