Eight Years with Damian Lewis

OH. MY. GOD.

Fan Fun with Damian Lewis is eight years old today!

Eight years?!?!?!

YES, eight years!

I vividly remember the conversation I had with Lewisto in the last weeks of 2014 about whether it would be worth keeping an online fan diary about Damian Lewis. Being the rational guy that he is, Lewisto suggested I do it  only if I was confident I could commit for at least two years so it would be worth the effort.

2 years?!?! We just quadrupled that 😀 😀 😀 Continue reading “Eight Years with Damian Lewis”

TOP Damian Lewis Moments 2022: ‘Keane’ Screening and Q&A at Film at Lincoln Center

Grasshopper films giving Lodge Kerrigan’s beautiful movie Keane a 4K restoration and bringing it back to life on big screen across the US is a highlight on its own. And when the 4K restored Keane screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center is coupled with the director and the actor Damian Lewis intoducing the film together, watching  it with the audience and doing a lively Q&A after the screening makes it a top moment! And I feel very privileged to have shared that special evening – full house at Francesca Beale Theater – with Mr. Kerrigan, Damian and my fellow independent movie fans. The evening felt  like a collective celebration of independent cinema.

REDUX: ‘Keane’ with Lodge Kerrigan and Damian Lewis at Film at Lincoln Center

After the screenings at Film at Lincoln Center in New York and American Cinematheque in Los Angeles in  August, the recently digitally restored ‘Keane’ is going to Boston’s Brattle Theater for screenings on September 23 and 24. In celebration of these new screenings, I would love to share, one more time, my account of  the recent ‘Keane’ screening and Q&A with director Lodge Kerrigan and Damian himself at Film at Lincoln Center.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, August 2022 marks, after three years of famine, a month of delicious feast, a Damian Lewis one to be precise, for me! In early August, I was so privileged to be in the audience at Damian’s very special first gig at Omeara in London. And then I was there at the newly 4K restored Keane screening followed by a lively Q&A discussion with director Lodge Kerrigan and Damian himself. It was full house at Francesca Beale Theater at Film at Lincoln Center. Lodge Kerrigan and Damian introduced the movie together, they watched it with us, and then took the stage for more than a half-hour Q&A which actor Christopher Abbott led with his questions and kindly made room for audience questions towards the end. As a huge admirer of independent cinema and its fearless warriors that take risks and do art without taking the ‘box office factor’ into account,  I was honored to share the evening with Mr. Kerrigan, Damian, and fellow independent movie fans. The evening felt like a collective celebration of independent cinema!
