Andrew Bird: Fever Year, winner of the Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Omaha Film Festival, and the Audience Award at the 20th Anniversary Noise Pop Film Festival will have its Boston Premiere at the Independent Film Festival of Boston, Thursday April 26th.
The film is a feature length concert documentary that follows Andrew Bird after a rigorous year of touring. After an onstage injury, Bird finds himself feverish and on crutches – asking himself, are these the hazards of chasing the ghost of inspiration, or the transformation into a different kind of animal.
Fever Year captures Andre Bird’s multi-instrumental looping technique, and features live performances at Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater. The film looks like an entertaining (and great sounding) music documentary. The film is directed by Xan Aranda
The screening is Thursday, April 26 at 7:45pm at the Somerville Theater. Tickets are available at IFFBoston.org.
