The screening of Bang! The Bert Berns Story takes place on Saturday, November 18th at 6:30PM at the JCC Riemer-Goldstein Theater and is described by the Boston Jewish Film Festival as:
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 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.
There are only a limited number of tickets available and when they’re gone, they’re gone! Grab yours today by making a donation in support of Chagigah right now.
