John Lydon in person to introduce the Thursday, 10:15pm screening, and for a Q&A following the 7pm screening [SOLD OUT] and to introduce the 10pm screening on Friday.

“Anger is an energy!” When you’ve already shaken the British music industry and the culture as a whole to its very core, what do you do for a second act? If you’re John Lydon, formerly Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, you put together an exciting new group and fly straight in the face of expectation. The revealing new documentary The Public Image Is Rotten charts the unpredictable, sometimes frightening trajectory of Public Image, Ltd. through little-seen footage and candid, immensely entertaining interviews with Lydon. As crucial a story of recent popular music as it gets.

An Abramorama release.

Public Image, Ltd. is playing Brooklyn Steel on October 15th and the box set The Public Image is Rotten is now available.
