Reel to Reel: Stooge

Featuring a Post-Screening Conversation with Filmmakers Martin Kloiber, Stephen Smith, and Madeleine Farley

Stooge is not your typical rock ‘n’ roll documentary. It’s the story of magnetic Robert Pargiter, a childlike, super-fan of Iggy Pop & The Stooges, on a fanatical quest to keep rock alive. Taking us on a fly-on-the wall trek to London, San Francisco, L.A., and Miami, the film becomes an introspection into his life, and more broadly what drives any person to obsession. Comedy and tragedy co-exist in the serious business of dealing with personal demons, and ultimately how rock and roll gives him back his joie De vivre. Nominated in 2017 for “Best UK Feature” at London’s prestigious Raindance Film Festival, Director Madeleine Farley’s epic odyssey is This Is Spinal Tap meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. “Stooge is essential viewing not just for fans of Iggy Pop, but for fans of soul, passion, and above all, friendship.” – DA Film Review. Join the GRAMMY Museum for this special screening of Stooge, followed by a post-screening conversation with Producers Stephen Smith and Martin Kloiber and Director Madeleine Farley.
