DANNY SAYS is a documentary on the life and times of Danny Fields. Since
1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and culture of
the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy
Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5
and the Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to
the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records,
to "punk pioneer" and beyond. Danny's taste and opinion, once deemed
defiant and radical, has turned out to have been prescient. DANNY SAYS
is a story of marginal turning mainstream, avant garde turning
prophetic, as Fields looks to the next generation.
DANNY SAYS is lead by Fields voice and is largely crafted from over 250 hours of present-day interviews and items from Danny Fields' immense archive (thousands of photographs, audio cassettes, ephemera).
