FOLLOW DOUG’S ASTONISHING JOURNEY FROM RETIRED ACCOUNTANT AT AGE 60 TO THE WORLD’S LEAST LIKELY ROCK STAR IN THIS ACCLAIMED DOCUMENTARY-NARRATIVE HYBRID – COMING TO DIGITAL PLATFORMS MARCH 28 FROM GRAVITAS VENTURES.
|Director John Clayton Doyle’s acclaimed, award-winning I’M AN ELECTRIC LAMPSHADE premieres on digital platforms March 28 from Gravitas Ventures.
Called both “one of the best documentaries of the year” (on-magazine.co.uk), and “One of the best films we’ll see all year” (KQED), this unique, mind-bending musical odyssey stars Doug McCorkle, a buttoned-up, mild-mannered corporate accountant. After retiring at age 60, Doug puts his marriage, life savings, and reputation on the line to chase his wildest dream.
Shot in the United States, Mexico & the Philippines, I’M AN ELECTRIC LAMPSHADE has been compared to Sean Baker’s Tangerine – with much of the cast, including Doug, portraying versions of themselves, bringing an authenticity to the film that would have been difficult to fake.
Regina McCorkle, Cesar Valentino, Isra Jeron Ysmael, and Darnell Bernard also star in this joyous, heart-warming, and offbeat docu-narrative adventure that’ll have you cheering from the sofa!
