Jeff Feuerzeig, acclaimed director of documentaries like The Devil And Daniel Johnston and a friend of AF, is on a bit of a roll. His excellent short documentary The Dude (which you can watch at the USA Network and/or read an interview with Jeff on it here) has been chosen for the Anarchy section of this year’s Slamdance Film Festival. AND… His monster hit documentary for ESPN Films, The Real Rocky, has been named one of the top 20 documentaries of 2011 by the respected and admired Documentary Blog. The Real Rocky is about Chuck Wepner, the man who inspired Sylvester Stallone’s classic boxing film, Rocky.
So, congrats to Jeff. He is rocking.
