For decades, Mick Rock has established himself as one of the premier rock photographers in history — and on April 7 a new documentary film will be released chronicling his status as a legend of the industry.
Titled Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock, the documentary will be made available in select theaters around the country in addition to iTunes, Amazon Video and OnDemand services.
Rock, who of course appears throughout the film, is known for his now-iconic work with the likes of Blondie, Queen, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, the Ramones, Lou Reed, and many more.
Here’s a bit of additional context about the film, followed by its official trailer:
SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK is an odyssey into the colorful and bohemian tales of rock ‘n’ roll’s history. A cinematic adventure that delves deep into the mind of one of rock’s greatest living photographers: Mick Rock. Through the poignant lens of rock ‘n’ roll mythology; icon-maker, psychedelic explorer, poet, and custodian of dreams Mick Rock navigates his story from the glam rock shimmer of London to the snarl of NYC punk, and deep into the new millennium. Mick turns inward to face himself and the experiences as the visual record-keeper of myths and legends that propelled him into a living icon in this rock n’ roll comeback story. Mick’s now infamous images of the likes of David Bowie, Queen, Syd Barrett (Founding member of Pink Floyd), Blondie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop are now imprinted on our collective psyche forever and generations to come.
