Pub: The Movie

(2022, dir. Andrew Leavold, w/ Clinton Walker, Fred Negro, Graham Hood, Paul Stewart, Steve Lucas, Tim Rogers)

Pub: The Movie will finish at approximately 10:38pm.

Fred Negro is an infamous Melbourne ratbag whose role in the local music scene cannot be underestimated: a musician and artist, an impresario and familiar local barfly, a satirist and cartoonist who chronicled his beloved St Kilda as the heart of musical talent in his weekly Pub comic strip. He takes audiences through the dirty and mythic Melbourne music scene, regaling stories that also reflect on the changing face of modern cities’ role in birthing the future of music. For his new film, director Andrew Leavold works off a wealth of archival material – photos, recordings, gig videos, newspaper clippings, fanzines, fliers, TV appearances and live performances – as well as new footage of the bars and pubs of St Kilda. Featuring a line-up of Melbourne music legends including Tim Rogers (You Am I), Greg Macainsh (Skyhooks), Paulie Stewart (Painters and Dockers) and many more, Pub: The Movie is not to be missed by lovers of local rock and fans of documentaries like Persecution Blues: The Battle for the Tote (MIFF 2011), We’re Livin’ on Dog Food (MIFF 2009) and Autoluminescent: Rowland S. Howard (MIFF 2011). (IMDB)
