I’m An Electric Lampshade – it’s never too late to be a rock start
Director John Clayton Doyle’s acclaimed documentary-narrative hybrid I’M AN ELECTRIC LAMPSHADE tells the story of the mind-bending music odyssey tells of Doug McCorkle, a buttoned- up, mild-mannered corporate accountant. After retiring at age 60, Doug puts his marriage and life savings on the line to chase his wildest dream.
Shot in the United States, Mexico & the Philippines, the film has been compared to Sean Baker’s Tangerine, with much of the cast playing versions of themselves, adding to the authenticity of a film that would’ve been difficult to fake.
Featuring superlative performances from Doug McCorkle, Regina McCorkle, Cesar Valentino, Isra Jeron Ysmael, Darnell Peart, Robin Dunn, Mark Joseph Aquino, Marshall Factora, and Marion McCorkle Beckerman.
