The long-awaited documentary by Skizz Cyzyk about stripmine crooner Rev. Fred Lane and the Raudelunas arts community he came from premieres on April 7, 2018 at the Chattanooga Film Festival. The film is slated to be screened in San Francisco in June. Check theIcepick to the Moon Facebook page for updates.
"ICEPICK TO THE MOON, which will make its world premiere at the festival, centers on cult following of the obscure, strip-mine crooner Rev. Fred Lane. His obsessive fans, who have described him as “subversive,” “completely satirical,” “the Dada Duke Ellington,” and “Demon Frank Sinatra,” have spent years examining every detail of Lane’s albums, and yet whatever information they have found out about their hero has led them deeper into blissful confusion. ICEPICK TO THE MOON not only examines the cult of Fred Lane fans, but it also pulls the curtain back on the artist who is Fred Lane, from his early involvement in the Raudelunas arts collective of Alabama in the 1970s to his current occupation making whirligigs to sell on the craft show circuit. Following the screening will be a Q&A with director Skizz Cyzyk."
