DIRECTOR: MATT WOLF

Director Matt Wolf with Producer Kyle Martin in person for a Q&A following the 6:45pm show and to introduce the 8:45pm show.

This touching, smartly structured chronicle celebrates the Iowa-born musical genius’s prodigious genre-tweaking during his time in New York, where he lived from 1973 until his death from AIDS in 1992. Among his wide-ranging output, Russell recorded avant-Buddhist chants with Allen Ginsberg—and, under many different noms de disco, produced some of the greatest dance music of the era.
