The makers of an upcoming feature documentary about the Sunset Strip unveiled their debut trailer this past weekend at the Cannes Film Festival.
Written and directed by LA filmmaker and musician Hans Fjellestad, Sunset Strip features reminiscences from Johnny Depp, Pamela Des Barres, Hugh Hefner, Courtney Love, Alice Cooper, and many more recognizable faces. Fjellestad is himself a musician and current artist-in-residence at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood, where he programs and hosts the monthly concert series ResBox.
Also appearing in the documentary is Sofia Coppola, whose recent film Somewhere tried to pay the Chateau Marmont a similar, tributary compliment. More info about the film is available at SunsetStriptheMovie.com and Facebook. Looks like a fun flick.
