The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip of Bob Weir, a new rock-doc on The Grateful Dead’s guitarist will make its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The Alan Hicks-directed project will catalog the Weir’s life from dropping out of school to ride with the Merry Pranksters to becoming one of the most iconic guitarists with The Grateful Dead.
Additional screenings at the festival include Super Duper Alice Cooper, also making its world premiere, that tells the story of Cooper’s emergence from the Detroit music scene in the 1970s and features rare archival footage of the glam metal icon.
Megan Griffiths directed a project on trumpeting legend Clark Terry, who is credited as mentor to Miles Davis and Quincy Jones, in Keep On Keepin’ On. The film will focus on the musical aspects of Terry’s life and his newest protege, Justin Kauflin, who is emerging while Terry’s ailing health threatens to end his life.
This year’s Tribeca Film Festival will take place April 16-27. All additional festival information and further screenings can be found at the TFF’s website.
