Mill Valley Film Festival

Amoeba Music is proud to co-present two music documentaries showing at the 40th Annual Mill Valley On The Sly, Sly and the Family StoneFilm Festival, which runs October 5-15. The Mill Valley Film Festival aims to bring inspirational feature and documentary films from around the world to captivate and motivate members of the San Francisco Bay Area community.

Catch these two riveting music docs, both a must for serious music connoisseurs:

On The Sly: In Search of the Family Stone
Friday, Oct. 13 at 6:00pm at CinéArts Sequoia
Saturday, Oct. 14 at 9pm at Century Larkspur
Part amateur sleuthing adventure, part chronicle of a legendary artist, On the Sly documents one man’s quest to discover what happened to the reclusive Sly Stone. Interviews with former bandmates, label execs, and music historians detail the story of Sly and the Family Stone and its once-charismatic, now-mysterious leader. Producer Patrick Sheehan in attendance.

Third Mind Blues
Thursday, Oct. 12 at 5:30pm at CinéArts Sequoia
Friday, Oct. 13 at 9pm at Lark Theater
The story of the final creative partnership in the career of The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek was a wonderful study in contrasts with blues guitarist and Bay Area musician Roy Rogers. Third Mind Blues is the special behind-the-scenes look at their playful, philosophical collaboration that invoked the SF Beat poets and decades of music history. Director Willian Tyler Smith in attendance.
