The Nomi Song Details


[[Performer~P94849~Andrew Horn~andrewhorn]] (co-writer/producer of [[Feature~V154660~East Side Story~eastsidestory]]) directs the documentary The Nomi Song, a portrait of late German artist [[Performer~P398231~Klaus Nomi~klausnomi]]. Born in Bavaria during the '40s, [[Performer~P398231~Nomi~klausnomi]] was a trained opera singer who became an underground cult figure in New York City during the '70s. Fancifully dressed in black-and-white costumes, [[Performer~P398231~Nomi~klausnomi]] performed unique cabaret shows and earned a small but loyal fan base. He made recordings, appeared in films, and even sang for commercials. He was building up a career in Europe when he fell ill. He died in 1983 of an AIDS-related infection. The documentary includes interviews with actress [[Performer~P44595~Ann Magnuson~annmagnuson]], art director [[Performer~P398234~Page Wood~pagewood]], and photographer [[Performer~P398240~Anthony Scibelli~anthonyscibelli]]. The Nomi Song won the Teddy Award at the 2004 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
