A new documentary on the life of maverick producer Joe Meek is to be screened at this year’s North By North East film festival in Toronto.
‘A Life In The Death Of Joe Meek’ is directed by Howard S. Berger and Susan Stahman.

�The film chronicles the rise, fall and resurrection of Joe Meek, Britain's first independent pop record producer.� Writes the director. “It explores how Joe, due in equal measures to his pioneering DIY recording techniques, hit-making philosophy and a life full of social, psychological and sexual hardships, managed to leave an indelible stamp on the recording industry.�

“We’ve interviewed Joe's family, friends and colleagues and members of The Tornados and The Honeycombs.� he continues, “as well as Meek fans Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Keith Strickland (The B-52s), Huw Bunford (Super Furry Animals), and Edwyn Collins.�

The film will be screened by the NXNE Festival on Friday June 13 in the NFB cinema at 7:15.

The much anticipated film drama about Meek, 'The Telstar Man' is now imminent with latest reports citing work on the soundtrack which will feature a song by new pop darling Duffy.
