Watch Scene From New Iggy And The Stooges Documentary ‘Gimme Danger’

The new documentary by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, Gimme Danger, looks back on the legacy of Iggy Pop and the Stooges. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last week and will get its New York City premiere on October 28th with a Los Angeles debut to follow November 4th.

The clip premiering at Rolling Stone shows Pop’s infamous “peanut butter incident” in Cincinnati in June 1970 when he climbed atop the audience’s hands and smeared the condiment all over his chest and whisked it into the crowd during an extended performance of the Fun House rager “1970.”

Iggy And The Stooges Documentary To Make U.S. Festival Premiere

Iggy and the Stooges

The New York Film Festival’s Special Events section will feature the U.S. premiere of Gimme Danger, a documentary chronicling the history of legendary proto-punk band The Stooges. Director Jim Jarmusch and Stooges front man Iggy Pop will appear in person for the screening.

Directed by Jim Jarmusch
USA, 2016, DCP, 108m
U.S. Premiere

“Music is life and life is not a business,” said Iggy Pop when he and his surviving bandmates from The Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Jim Jarmusch’s cinematic offering to the punk gods of Ann Arbor traces the always raucous and frequently calamitous history of the Stooges from inception to the present. With the help of animator James Kerr, plus glimpses of Lucille Ball and a shirtless Yul Brynner amidst a bonanza of archival performance footage, photos, and interviews, Gimme Danger has the feeling of a night at Max’s Kansas City. An Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures release. Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch to appear in person!
