SF Jewish Film FestivalThe 35th annual San Francisco Jewish Film Festival returns to the Bay Area July 23rd - August 9th with a lineup that includes 70 films from 16 countries with ten Big Night programs featuring music, history, food, art, and love. Amoeba is thrilled to sponsor screenings of four amazing documentaries:


As I AM: The Life and Times of DJ AM
AS I AM: The Life and Times of DJ AMForget whatever you’ve heard about the life and death of Philadelphia-born DJ AM (born Adam Goldstein), the superstar club deejay who attained rock star status and survived a fiery plane crash only to die a short time later of a drug overdose at the age of 36. Director Kevin Kerslake’s haunting and heartbreaking portrait intimately conveys the brief life of an obsessive sonic genius for whom music, fame and love were tragically not enough.


Thursday, July 30, 6:25pm @ Castro Theatre 
Friday, July 31, 8:55pm @ California Theater (Berkeley)

Plus, check out Pump Up the JAMs: A Tribute to DJ AM with Mix Master Mike, a special afterparty at Public Works in SF on Thursday, July 30 at 9:00pm. Tix HERE!

Fields became the legendary “company freak” at the innovative Elektra record label where he earned the wrath of a kidnapped Jim Morrison, discovered and signed underground heroes the MC5 and Iggy Pop in a single weekend, and tried to manage the unmanageable Ramones. Drawing on rare footage and audio recordings (including an incredible cassette snippet of a delirious Lou Reed listening to the Ramones for the first time), this fascinating chronicle is capped by the wry and wistful reminiscence of Fields, the little-known Jewish godfather of punk rock.
