Mayor of the Sunset Strip
USA, 2003, 94 Minute Running Time
Through the glitter and the grunge, from The Monkees to Coldplay, Rodney Bingenheimer--a.k.a. Rodney on the ROQ--has reigned over the Los Angeles music scene for over two decades. A constantly evolving fixture as rock fan, journalist, promoter, club owner and radio DJ on KROQ, Bingenheimer has helped advance every adventurous rock mutation--California pop, glam, punk, goth, new wave, alternative--since he first hit the Sunset Strip during its psychedelic 1960s heyday.
Cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau will receive the 2nd annual George Hickenlooper Honorary Award from Colorado Film Commissioner Donald Zuckerman with a video introduction from Governor John Hickenlooper, cousin of the late renowned filmmaker. Frederic Lahey, founder of the Colorado Film School will moderate a post-film discussion.
