The Ledge, Episode 66: Color Me Obsessed Director Gorman Bechard
It was nine months ago that I had the pleasure of following author/filmmaker Gorman Bechard and his crew for four days as he interviewed fans and colleagues of The Replacements. Since that wonderful week, I've patiently waited for news on its completion.
Well, the movie is finally finished, and a few days ago Bechard announced the following screenings of Color Me Obsessed:
Saturday, March 26 @ 7:30pm (World Premiere)
Gasparilla Gasparilla International Film Festival

Saturday, April 2 @ 6:45pm

It's probably obvious that I will be at the Minneapolis screening!
With the premiere just days away, I felt it was time for Gorman to return to The Ledge studio to talk about the movie, the upcoming screenings, and to also share some of his current fave releases. The second half of the show includes music from some of the artists interviewed for the movie.
