What's on at Cameo Picturehouse - Picturehouse Docs
On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released what would become the world’s first concept album, SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll album ever made…” the album not only changed the course of music but went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time.
Featuring interviews with former employees, fellow musicians, family members and journalists, and supported by a vast array of original and exclusive never-seen-before footage, the film offers a fascinating insight into the swinging sixties and the twelve months surrounding the album’s release. Examining the band’s disillusionment with touring, their changing relationship with manager, Brian Epstein, and the advent of the Summer Of Love, this star-studded rockumentary explores the creation and recording of one of the most ground-breaking and influential albums in pop history.
Dogwoof proudly presents the UK premiere of Whitney: Can I Be Me followed by a live satellite Q&A with acclaimed director Nick Broomfield. Broadcast live from Sheffield Doc/Fest, this exclusive event creates the ultimate Whitney moment with largely never-before-seen footage and exclusive live recordings. Whitney Houston was the epitome of superstar, an “American Princess” and the most awarded female artist ever. Even though she made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than The Beatles, and became recognised for having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still wasn’t free to be herself and died at just 48 years old. Whitney: Can I Be Me tells Whitney Houston’s incredible and poignant life story with insights from those closest to her.
