The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Flagstaff premiere of the critically-acclaimed new music documentary “David Crosby: Remember My Name” on Wednesday, Sept. 11 as part of the festival’s monthly Flagstaff Cinema Series. There will be one screening of the film at 7 p.m. at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres.
A triumph at Sundance, this inspired collaboration between director A.J. Eaton and producer Cameron Crowe coaxes Crosby, member of three major groups in music history (The Byrds; Crosby, Stills & Nash; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), into unflinching candor as the singer-songwriter confronts mortality and assesses the damage of earlier days. At the same time, his redemptive journey back to music is universally inspiring and uplifting, bearing an emotional impact that transcends the rock documentary genre.
In the illuminating twilight of his days as a living legend, “Croz” has chosen living over the legend. He’s making less money but more music than ever, hitting the road despite serious health issues, surrounded by young players who have helped inspire a critically-acclaimed creative streak of fresh songs, albums, and performances. Taking viewers through soaring career highs, along with the chemical variety that led to ravaging addictions and serious prison time, “David Cosby: Remember My Name” explodes myths and sheds profound new light on all the music, politics, and personalities that crossed his incredible — and ongoing — path.
Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for full-time students and $9 for Film Festival members and can be purchased starting at 6 p.m. at the Harkins Lobby or by calling 928-282-1177 or online at sedonafilmfestival.org
