VERY EXTREMELY DANGEROUS

PAUL DUANE

Book Tickets

Exhilarating, compelling, at times harrowing, Very Extremely Dangerous is not like any other documentary you’ll see this year. Irish director Paul Duane (Barbaric Genius) takes a frightening, fascinating journey into the mad world of Jerry McGill, a 1960s rock ‘n’ roller from Memphis who left behind a promising career in music to concentrate his energy on a fully-fledged gun-toting, drug-taking life of crime.

We find him as he emerges from prison years later and, after finding out he has a serious illness, decides to finally record a follow up to his 1959 single, Lovestruck. However McGill is no reformed character, and Duane finds himself on the road with an ex-con seemingly hell-bent on destruction.

Director Paul Duane will be in attendance and the screening will be followed by a Q and A.
