Sad Vacation - The Last Days of Sid & Nancy - a bit more info

Recently I had a chat to Brett Dunford, who is the spokesperson for this project.

Here's a few things he told me about the new documentary.

'' I saw the workprint last night for the first time, and can say hands down, it blows every other doc out of the water.'' quote 28th May 2016.

I asked if it was a documentary or docudrama: "Sad Vacation" is a straightforward, no bullshit documentary with re enactments, location footage and licensed media.

Who is contributing to the story: I'm co-writing the narrative with Spanish director Danny Garcia, who made the recent films "The Rise and Fall of The Clash" and "Looking for Johnny".

Expected release date: We are aiming to get theatrical premieres rolling in October, with a DVD release to follow. "Sad Vacation" will be on fans' shelves by the end of the year.

What is the expected running time: I saw a workprint of Sad Vacation on Friday that had a running time of 97 minutes. We may tighten it up a little or we may extend it a little, especially if our crowdfunding campaign is a success.

 "Sad Vacation" will be out by October 2016. We've spent two years making this film, on and off, and now we have a deadline to meet.

Sid & Nancy story has been covered before, what will this offer that’s different: The truth for starters. We re-interviewed some of the key residents of the Chelsea Hotel, and we have access to newly-released legal documents. It's not a definitive verdict - that is out of our hands - but a strictly impartial analysis that will present the facts straighter and more coherently than the past.''

so there you have it - some up to date info - as much as I know right now.

I took the info below from their Indiegogo page -

''Thanks to your help in our previous campaign, we have managed to assemble a great cast for "Sad Vacation". We have conducted many interviews with those who encountered punk rock's Romeo and Juliet, including Roberta BayleySteve "Roadent" ConollyDonna DestriKenny "Stinker" GordonBob GruenJohn HolmstromFrank InfanteHellin KillerWalter LureHonest John PlainHowie PyroCynthia RossAndy Shernoff, Gaye Black, Casino Steel, Phyllis SteinSylvain Sylvain; in addition to the late Leee Black Childers.

We are especially pleased to have interviewed three key residents of the Chelsea Hotel, Victor Colicchio"Neon" Leon Matthews, and Ned Van Zandt, who had a lot to tell us about that morning. Drawing upon their reflections and a batch of newly-released Grand Jury documents, we have been able to piece together a solid timeline of events for the very first time.''

This is all very exciting - keep looking in, if I get more info I will share it with you all as soon as I have it.
