Now available on VOD: WE DON’T WANNA MAKE YOU DANCE
Lucy Kostelanetz’s decades-long chronicle of would-be celebrity made its debut at DOC NYC in 2013. Other festival berths have included St Louis, Minneapolis-St Paul, IndieLisboa, Raindance, and In-Edit in Barcelona, Colombia, and Brazil. MusicFilmWeb now makes the doc available on demand.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In a rock band twist on the 7 UP series, Lucy Kostelanetz intermittently checks in on a white teen funk band – three brothers and their friend – whose plan of making it big in 1980s NYC didn’t exactly pan out. In 1983, Miller, Miller, Miller & Sloan seemed on the brink of stardom, with positive press and gigs at CBGB. Five years later, fame had still not found the foursome. By 1993, they’d broken up, but a reunion fifteen years later reveals the paths where creativity took them as adults.
