TAKEN BY STORM: THE ART OF STORM THORGERSON AND HIPGNOSIS
Storm Thorgerson's album covers are some of the most evocative and visually arresting images in popular culture. After studying film, he co-founded famed graphic art company Hipgnosis in the late-60s. Over the decades, Thorgerson has created memorable artwork for albums by Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Pretty Things, Led Zeppelin, Yes, Peter Gabriel, AC/DC, ELO, XTC, The Cranberries, The Mars Volta, and many others. Taken By Storm illuminates his career and unique process, and includes interviews with musicians (David Gilmour, Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel) and contemporary visual artists (Peter Blake, Damien Hirst). This special screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director and a reception with a live performance by musician Chris Brokaw, who created original music for the film.
