The Bright Young Things Film Club Presents a Special Screening of RADIOMAN and Q&A with director Mary Kerr
RADIOMAN is the unbelievable story of an extraordinary eccentric, a New York street bum of the same (nick)name who overcame homelessness and addiction to become an unlikely New York City movie legend with over 100 small parts to his name.
"A good-luck charm on New York film sets, Radioman is hidden in every film and TV show shot in the city, almost as a Where's Waldo? character."
Featuring interviews with celebrities such as George Clooney, Matt Damon, Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Tilda Swinton, Robin Williams, Jude Law, Josh Brolin, Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Fey and more, the film is a funny, heart-warming, insightful look into a memorable character full of contradictions, of bitterness but also of hope.
Now in his early 60s, Radioman (as he is called due to the trademark boombox radio he hangs around his neck) spends his days and nights cycling around the city from one film set to another, hanging out with the cast and crew between takes, collecting autographs from the stars, and then waiting outside premieres and hotels for the same people he just spent the whole day with. The stars, filmmakers, and crew are the closest thing Radioman has to a family.
Tickets: £15 + service charge, include CIROC Ultra Premium vodka cocktails, popcorn courtesy of Kettle Chips and snacks by [itsu], Fiji Water, Green & Black's ice cream; as well as access to the post-screening Q&A and Green & Black's post-event entertainment in the Salon at The May Fair Hotel.
