AKA DOC POMUS (USA, 2012, English, 90 minutes)
Brooklyn-born Jerome Felder was paralyzed by polio as a child. He grew up to become a blues singer in Greenwich Village, took the name Doc Pomus, and went on to become one of rock & roll’s most brilliant songwriters. His hits, This Magic Moment, Save the Last Dance for Me and countless others, infuse this poignant biography, telling the story of a man, his music and our nation.
