It Came From Schenectady presents
ICFS is thrilled to have been selected to present an advance screening of this new Joan Jett documentary. The film opens nationwide two days later, but Jett recorded a solo performance that will only be available to be seen at advance screenings of the rock doc. Jett and her team currently expect to also be able to offer ICFS several special items to be given away at our screening, possibly – they suggest – including signed records.
So much more than “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll,” Jett put in the hard work long before fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of hard-rock legends The Runaways, where she influenced many – both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands – with her no-bullshit style.
“Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: even though people tried to define Jett and keep her stuck to one hit, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.” – Sundance
Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, and Pete Townshend are among the many who give tribute to Jett in this fantastic doc. Not Rated. 95 minutes.
