Q & A with Rick Springfield & the Filmmakers
Wed/Thurs after the 7:15PM Screenings
Some may find the rabid devotion of Rick Springfield fans perplexing. But if his 17 top 40 power-pop hits, including “Jessie’s Girl”, or his stint as General Hospital’s Dr. Noah Drake didn’t convince you, watching him blast out pure charisma in his live shows and spontaneous fan drop-ins would convert anyone. Somewhere between the introvert haunted by depression and the 60-something extrovert who still performs 80 to 100 high-energy concerts a year, lies the real Rick Springfield. For most fans, it’s much more than a celebrity crush. Some have overcome deep trauma by connecting with his music; all feel a special bond with him. But what makes him unique is that the bond flows both ways. A fascinating look at a singular multi-generational celebrity culture, An Affair of the Heart is a soulful examination of contrasting individual connections revealed through common universal threads of humanity.
There’s a lot more to Rick Springfield than his signature #1 hit “Jessie’s Girl.” With 17 top-40 hits and more than 25 million records sold, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter/actor/musician/performer and New York Times best-selling author continues to compose and record inventive, lyrical songs with a strong pop/rock attitude that speak to the heart—and the human condition. Universal Music is releasing his latest album “Songs For The End of the World” on October 9th and earlier this year he wrote and recorded a new song with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters). www.rickspringfield.com
