Return to Return to the Starck Club
There is no pinned-down time line for The Official Release of Michael Cain's The Starck Project, his long-in-the-works look at Blake Woodall's opened-in-'84 dance-dance-danceteria on McKinney. "Let's say late 2011, early 2012," went the latest response to someone's due-date query. Though from the looks of the Facebook page, interviews continue apace as Cain sifts through the archives.
This much is certain: Joseph F. Alexandre's feature-length version of his 2009 20-minute short Warriors of the Discotheque: The Starck Club Documentary will make its bow April 30 at 9:30 p.m. at the Mockingbird Station Angelika as part of this year's USA Film Festival. I see at least one new familiar face in the new trailer Alexandre sends along this morning: none other than Jeff Liles (say, that's two in a row), who, upon the occasion of the club's 25th anniversary in '09 wrote for us this invaluable oral history (comments included) that reads like Studs Terkel on Ecstasy and New Order.
