New York Doll
Friday, we’re telling the story of Arthur “Killer” Kane. In the 1970s, Kane was the bass player for the influential glam-punk band The New York Dolls. Thirty years after the band breaks up, filmmaker Greg Whitely finds Kane in the Mormon Church’s Family History Library. He’s quit drugs, found God, and has a dream of getting the band back together. It’s the 10th anniversary of the film, and it’s screening in Provo. We’ll check in with Whitely and rebroadcast our conversation about his extraordinary documentary.
Friday, October 23, 7:00 p.m. at the Covey Center for the Performing Arts, Provo Film Society presents a screening of New York Doll. Greg Whiteley will be on hand for a Q-and-A, followed by a concert featuring a special house band led by Branden Campbell of Neon Trees with members of Fictionist performing New York Dolls songs.
