Cocktail reception from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. Special performance by Elliott starts at 7:45PM. Broken Poet screening starts at 8:00PM with Question & Answer session to follow.
Broken Poet is the story of 1970’s rock star Jake Lion, who was presumed dead in Paris until his former roadie Plynth happens to be riding in the Paris Metro forty years after Jake’s much publicized suicide and happens to hear an aged street musician who sounds just like him. In search of an exclusive story, Rolling Stone publisher Kathy Madison sends rock journalist Meg Trudeau to Paris to investigate, who before leaving visits Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa at their New Jersey home in hopes of gaining insight into Jake Lion’s successful career and tragic death.
