Legendary punk documentarian Don Letts (The Punk Rock MovieStrummerville) delivers this definitive portrait of photographer Bob Gruen. Most famous for his iconic photo of John Lennon in shades and a sleeveless “New York City” t-shirt, Gruen was Lennon and Yoko Ono’s personal photographer and a consummate insider who redefined the still image in rock with what Alice Cooper has described as “the ultimate backstage pass.” Featuring celebrated shots of the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Who, Chuck Berry, David Bowie, Elton John, Queen, Iggy Pop, the Clash, the Sex Pistols, Blondie, and more—alongside dozens of interviews with Debbie Harry, Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Billy Joe Armstrong, punk historian Legs McNeil, and, of course, Gruen himself—Rock ‘N’ Roll Exposed is the true history of rock ‘n’ roll from the 60s to the present. 

After the screening, join fellow filmgoers for a free BAMcinemaFest Closing Night party in the BAMcinemaFest Lounge.

BAM Cinema Club members at all levels must RSVP to this free screening by emailingMembership@BAM.org
