Waiting: The Van Duren Story

Born from the ashes of cult outfit Big Star, and billed as a new Paul McCartney, Memphis musician Van Duren seemed headed for very big things.

Then he fell off the map.

Waiting: The Van Duren Story tells the tale of his rediscovery by two Australians and their journey to find him, encountering rockstars, Scientology, con-men, and a tragedy of obscurity in spite of prodigious talent along the way.

Screening for one night only at Cinemona (and featuring a Q&A with the film-makers and Van Duren himself after the film, hosted by Brian Ritchie), this is a rare chance to catch an evening show at Walshie’s private cinema, and heckle the creatives involved afterward.
