Film Independent Members and guests are invited to join us for a live Q&A with The Sparks Brothers director/producer Edgar Wright and featured subjects Ron and Russell Mael, moderated by Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, The Nowhere Inn).
How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential and criminally overlooked all at the same time? Edgar Wright’s debut documentary The Sparks Brothers, which features commentary from celebrity fans Flea, Jane Wiedlin, Beck, Jack Antonoff, Jason Schwartzman, Neil Gaiman and more, takes audiences on a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers/bandmates Ron and Russell Mael celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favorite band’s favorite band.
From Focus Features, The Sparks Brothers will be in select theaters June 18.
2021, 135 minutes, color | Directed by Edgar Wright | Featuring Ron Mael and Russell Mael | Produced by Nira Park, Edgar Wright, George Hencken, Laura Richardson
