Sunday, February 10, 4 pm: Paul Williams: Still Alive at 14 Pews
  • “He won Grammys and an Academy Award; wrote many #1 songs; starred in a Brian DePalma movie; put out his own hit records and albums; was a guest on The Tonight Show fifty times; and is the president of ASCAP...and you might not have heard of him. In the 1970's, Paul Williams was the singer / actor / songwriter that emotional, alienated teenage boys all over the world wanted to be, a sex symbol before MTV, when sex symbols could be 5"2 and sing songs about loneliness with the Muppets. A wistful musical journey that will re-introduce a new generation to Williams' soulful classics, Paul Williams: Still Alive is the charmingly self-narrated story of Stephen Kessler's lifelong obsession with the former superstar-and what happens when the nostalgic filmmaker finally catches up with him. 
  • When director Stephen Kessler first began to look into Williams’ life, he believed that he was dead. But after finding out that Williams was very much alive, he talked the aging pop star into letting him film his current experiences, in the process cultivating a tenuous friendship that proves more revealing – about both men – than either expected.”
  • I have seen this movie and it’s awesome.
  • 14 Pews is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the diverse cultural needs of our community by providing a forum to experience, discuss and celebrate film, art & music, and to strengthen our community through education and fostering cross-cultural experiences.
