School of Rock (2003) FILM TALK

Hosted by Alysha Main (Music Supervisor/DJ/Host of “Hamilton Film” Podcast)
Join the Hamilton Film Festival‘s Hamilton School of Media Arts for a pre-show acoustic jam session!
A series for true music lovers craving a big audiovisual experience with the greatest sonic moments ever captured on film.  Host Alysha Main will take the audience on a journey through the liner notes and deep cuts from the most beloved music documentaries and biopics of all time.
In Part 2 of the series, we expand past documentaries into biopics and films with a unique musical focus.  We’ll see iconic 1970s performances by Elvis Presley, James Brown, Bill Withers, B.B. King & more; we’ll explore the lives of legendary artists Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, and we’ll have some family fun at the “School of Rock”.
After being kicked out of his rock band, Dewey Finn (Jack Black), tricks his way into becoming a fifth-grade a substitute teacher at a private school.  Dewey secretly begins teaching his students the finer points of rock ’n’ roll, preparing them for an epic Battle of the Bands performance while trying to avoid the suspicions of the uptight principal and his roommate.
