A.K.A. DOC POMUS - Minnesota Premiere!
Opening Night of the 2013 Minneapolis Jewish Flm Festival
Thursday, February 28 at 7pm
followed by an opening reception

"If the [American] music industry had a heart it would be Doc Pomus." ~ record producer Jerry Wexler

Paralyzed with polio as a child, Brooklyn-born Jerome Felder reinvented himself first as a blues singer, renaming himself Doc Pomus, then emerged as a one of the most brilliant songwriters of the early rock and roll era, writing "Save the Last Dance for Me," "This Magic Moment," "A Teenager in Love," "Viva Las Vegas," and dozens of other hits. For most of his life Doc was confined to crutches and a wheelchair, but he lived more during his sixty-five years than others could experience in several lifetimes.

Featuring interviews with Doc's collaborators and friends, including Dr. John, Ben E. King, Joan Osborne, Shawn Colvin, Dion, Leiber and Stoller, and B.B. King. Doc Pomus' gripping life story makes for a powerful and lively film that introduces this unique American character to a new, much wider circle of admirers. A.K.A. DOC POMUS brings to life Doc's joyous, romantic, heartbreaking, and extraordinarily eventful journey.
