Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world for a global theatrical event: “Immediate Family” on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
“Immediate Family” premiered at the recent Sedona International Film Festival where it was among the top, highest rated audience choice films in the lineup.
“Immediate Family” tracks the rise and collaborations of a group of legendary session musicians Danny Kortchmar, Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel, and Waddy Wachtel through the 1970s and onward, chronicling their illustrious partnerships and their formidable record of hit-making.
Directed by Denny Tedesco, whose documentary “The Wrecking Crew” followed the first wave of studio musicians in the 60s, the film reveals the machinery behind the booming era of the singer/songwriter, when the talents of these four musicians were in furious demand.
The foundations of their enduring friendship, formed on the road and in studios, is recalled with dynamite clarity — reminisced with fondness through intimate interviews with the guys themselves, as well as the memories of some of rock’s most iconic voices including Carole King, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Keith Richards, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Lyle Lovett, Phil Collins, and more.
“Immediate Family” is a backstage tour spanning multiple eras of musical history.
“Immediate Family” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $12 general admission, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
