Michael J. Kirk’s “Mr Nelson: On the North Side” is a new documentary about Prince, soon to be screened

https://variety.com/2018/...203006870/

.

Feature documentaries about Chaka Khan and Prince are on Kew Media Distribution’s slate for the AFM. Kew is building a profile in music documentaries, launching “Chuck Berry” at Mipcom and recently sealing deals with Showtime and Sky for “Teddy Pendergrass – If You Don’t Know Me.”

.

In Michael J. Kirk’s “Mr Nelson: On the North Side,” Spike Moss, a musical mentor of Prince, talks about the origin and influences that shaped the star’s musical skills. In turn, musical icons including Chuck D, Macy Gray and Chaka Khan recount stories of Prince and how he inspired them. It is the latest factual project about Prince since his death in 2016.

.

Hmmm, is this the same documentary that was previously announced as "Prince: R U Listening?", or is this a different one and that previous one never got made?

.

And whatever happened to Mathieu Bitton's doc?

There needs to be a mass released Doc. One with a creative A-list director attached and unlimited access to concert performances, some vault studio material, PR outtakes and real musicology insights.

It would outgross any documentary (Amy Winehouse, Michael Moore) EVER, if done right, and add invaluable insight to his legacy.

Of course, Troy Carter would have to be on board and provide leadership.

Is this the same doc that Dez was initially involved in because Michael Kirk was involved in that doc too.

If so, it has gone through several titles. I think at some point it was called "Nothing Can Stop Us Now" and also "Prince R U Listening"

That wasn't a teaser for a doc, that was just the guy who filmed the footage advertising his footage so people who wanted to make a doc could contact him if they needed it.

They later claimed that this wasn't the case and that they did want to make a documentary, but that's obviously baloney.

BartVanHemelen I believe you can do a project by now. Are you working on anything?
I'm just saying I'd enjoy that.
