FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lincoln Center Honors Michael Jackson on August 30th, 2009

Tuesday, August 25, 2009 — by Wow Jones

Groundbreaking Pop Star Michael Jackson is the subject of a one-of-a-kind presentation this week at New York City’s Lincoln Center.

Controversial NY Press Film Critic (and current New York Film Critics Circle Chairman) Armond White is dedicating an entire evening to the work of Michael Jackson in the music video genre. His “KEEP MOVING: Michael Jackson’s Video Art” will be held on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 6 pm at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.

In this 90 Minute Presentation, esteemed critic and author Armond White will take an in-depth look at Michael Jackson’s innovations in the music video genre.

White notes, “When Hollywood didn’t come calling, Michael Jackson responded with a series of short musical films that displayed his affection for the pop tradition. From the popular Thriller to the GREAT Black or White and other landmarks, Michael Jackson—the ultimate performer-as-auteur—changed the way the world responds to cinema.”

In the past Armond White has offered interpretations of a number of music videos by acclaimed filmmakers (Mark Romanek, Marcus Nispel, Hype Williams, Ben Stokes, Spike Jonze, Joseph Kahn, etc), musicians and singers. This is the second time he has focused an entire presentation to one pop artist/music video subject. Armond White had music video presentation devoted to Michael Jackson in January of 2008.

Armond White will also be signing copies of his new book, “KEEP MOVING: The Michael Jackson Chronicles”.
