Worldwide theatrical premiere event features The Beach Boys’ legendary star
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join cinemas around the globe for a worldwide theatrical premiere of “Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road” showing Nov. 17-24 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Join The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson on an intimate journey through his legendary career as he reminisces with Rolling Stone editor and longtime friend, Jason Fine.
“Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road” features a new song written and performed by Wilson and interviews with Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Jonas, Linda Perry, Jim James, Gustavo Dudamel and Al Jardine.
Brian Wilson is, indisputably, one of the greatest musicians who’s ever lived. He turned pop music into hymnals, with an unprecedented mastery of the recording studio that produced, as well as inspired, some of the most acclaimed albums of all time. He’s also one of the most misunderstood, and we’ve never heard his whole story from the most important perspective: his own.
“Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road” is an entirely different kind of documentary: driving around LA with his best friend, Wilson revisits the places that were formative in his legendary career, while archival footage and Wilson’s own words fill in the backstory. This is the definitive telling of one of pop music’s most influential figures, and a must for any fan.
“The movie shows that Brian Wilson’s genius is not something that should ever be taken for granted. God only knows what we’d be without him.” – Variety
“UNMISSABLE for anyone with even a passing interest in the history of music from The Beach Boys era and beyond.” – The Film Stage
“This isn’t a traditional documentary, and that’s what makes this film a truly moving piece of art.” – Solzy at the Movies
