Music meets the mob in this documentary about Bert Berns, the record producer who brought us hits like “Twist and Shout,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” and “Piece of My Heart.” He launched the careers of greats like Van Morrison and The Isley Brothers, but Berns’ life was cut short at the young age of 38. Directed by Berns’ son, Brett, and Bob Sarles with interviews by the likes of Ben E. King, Van Morrison, Keith Richards, and Paul McCartney, “Bang! The Bert Berns Story” is a delightful foray into Berns’ world, one inhabited by some of the brightest lights in rock and soul as well as shady characters of the gangster underworld.
Join us for a Rock ‘n Roll Party after the Nov. 18 screening.
