Driver 23

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Director: Rolf Belgum Run Time: 72 min. Format: 35mm Release Year: 1999

Newly re-stored and distributed by the Found Footage Festival, Driver 23 (1999) and The Atlas Moth (2001) document seven years in the life of Dan Cleveland, a Minneapolis-based rock guitarist/deliveryman and his band, Dark Horse.

In spite of, or because of his obsessive-compulsive disorder, Dan is driven with an existential need to accomplish something… anything. He faces all obstacles with uncanny determination and the help of a variety of homemade inventions. An antidote for the manufactured puff pieces of the 90s MTV era, these two films show the gritty reality and stranger-than-fiction comedy of an aspiring rock star.

Driver 23 has been called The American Movie of rock documentaries and was a staple of the late 90s, early 00’s VHS tape-trading era. It was also a favorite on the Pearl Jam tour bus so much so that guitarist Stone Gossard even called director Rolf Belgum at home to tell him how much they loved it.
