There’s nothing like a great review!
I’ve known John Shipp for more than 30 years, but it took this lighthearted, utterly charming documentary for me to truly appreciate the guy.
In recent years Shipp has been known as a film booker and as a moving force in Kansas City FilmFest, the Film Society of Greater Kansas City and CinemaKC.
But this film, made by his nephews, Devin and Shannon Kelley (their first effort, and it’s a keeper), opened my eyes to Shipp’s wildly colorful backstory.
You’ll definitely want to read the whole thing. And then you’re absolutely want to come to the screening playing at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 22, at the Screenland Crown Center. Click that link to get tickets!
