A one off chance to see Olivia Lichtenstein's tender documentary about the unforgettable voice behind “Don’t Leave Me This Way,” “Close the Door” and “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” Teddy Pendergrass.
Teddy was poised to be the biggest R&B artist of all time with five consecutive platinum albums. But his career was halted by a 1982 car accident that left him paralyzed at age 31. This definitive biography, set to a soulful soundtrack, captures revealing interviews with his closest associates to trace his rise, fall and post-accident comeback at Live Aid.
After the film we're delighted to be joined for a post screening Q&A with director Olivia Lichtenstein.
