Lou Reed could easily make a documentary about his storied musical career, but he's not going that route right now. Instead, the singer has directed a documentary about Shirley Novick, his 99-year-old cousin. The film, dubbed Red Shirley, is just under a half-hour, and features Novick recounting her life stories to Reed. She discussed surviving not one, but two World Wars, losing family members to the Nazis and her work as an activist for women's rights.
The movie makes its world premiere on April 20th at Switzerland’s Visions Du Reel Film Festival, but you can also check out the trailer here.
Do you think someone should make a documentary about Lou Reed's life before he's nearly 100-years-old?
