I Am Not A Rock Star
Film Screening Featuring Pianist Marika Bournaki
Friends of Chamber Music, in collaboration with the Denver Film Society, will be screening the film I Am Not a Rock Star about the career of Juilliard-trained concert pianist Marika Bournaki. A part of the Women+Film program, the screening will take place Thursday night, February 6, at the Sie Film Center, 2510 E. Colfax Ave. A 6:00 pm wine and cheese reception will precede the 7:00 pm film screening.
Shot over eight years, the award-winning feature documentary follows the dramatic coming-of-age story of Montreal-born Bournaki from age 12 to 20. The Huffington Post calls Bournaki “the Celine Dion of classical music.” The film gives viewers a rare look inside the world of classical music, while exploring universal human themes of dreams, love, sacrifice, determination, family, and the elusive alchemy required to find one’s purpose in life. I Am Not a Rock Star made its New York premiere at Lincoln Center in July of 2013. Both Marika Bournaki and film director Bobbi Jo Hart will be present for a Q&A session immediately after the film.
Tickets are $15 each and are available through the Denver Film Center, 720-381-0813, http://www.denverfilm.org.
