American Documentary Film Festival Establishes Strategic Partnership with Rancho Mirage Public Library Foundation; Program to Launch with Sneak Preview of I AM NOT A ROCK STAR.

The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs) announced today that it has established a long-term strategic partnership with the Rancho Mirage Public Library Foundation. The partnership includes a variety of ongoing screenings and events throughout the year, and will begin with a very special FREE preview screening of the award-winning documentary, I AM NOT A ROCK STAR on Monday, April 1st at 7pm.  A brief Q&A will follow the screening, then Marika Bournaki, the star of the film, will take the stage for a live piano performance.

Filmed over the course of eight years by award-winning director Bobbi Jo Hart, I AM NOT A ROCK STAR follows the dramatic coming of age story of classical music phenom Marika Bournaki from age 12 to 20. Hart’s film amounts to a front row seat in the unfolding of a life and the forming of a personality. Shot in verite style in concert halls, hotels and airports around the world – and featuring stunning piano performances – the film turns Bournaki’s life into a visual narrative, revealing both the rewards and costs of a life dedicated to music excellence.
