Mendocino premiere of The Byrd Who Flew Alone
Talk about full circle!
It seems fitting that The Byrd Who Flew Alone, Paul Kendall's extraordinary documentary about Gene Clark, would be screened in Mendocino, CA, since it was Clark's stomping ground during much of the 1970s.
The screening, which took place on September 13, 2014 at Hill House, was by all accounts a tremendous success, and featured performances from Kai Clark and others."It was a great day," says director Kendall. "The audience started spontaneously singing 'I Shall Be Released' at the end of the film. Kai did a lovely solo version of 'Silver Raven', at the start of the evening's music, and joined the band in a really kicking 'I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better'".
The next screening of The Byrd Who Flew Alone in California will take place on Thursday, September 18 at the South Pasadena Public Library. Mr. Kendall will be attendance for a brief Q&A.
Special thanks to Paul Kendall for giving The Clarkophile permission to post these photos from the screening.
