Description

Featuring a Skype Q&A with Jaan Uhelszki, a music journalist, co-founder of the music magazine Creem, and one of the first women to work in rock journalism. Moderated by New York Times bestselling author Charles R. Cross. Capturing the messy upheaval of the '70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, the film explores CREEM Magazine's humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse - spotlighting iconic features, interviews, and anecdotes along the way - then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later.
