'Dead Ringer'

When: Wed., Jan. 25, 7-9 p.m. 2023

Forty years ago, the late rock star Meat Loaf filmed Dead Ringer, a comedic pseudo-documentary meant to accompany the release of his album of the same name. Then arcane legal issues kept the film from being released, and it’s only been screened two or three times since its completion. Now, Vermont International Film Festival offers Vermonters the chance to see one of the cinema world’s rarest films and take in the joyful story of Meat Loaf, his civilian doppelgänger and the raucous world of 1980s rock.

Price: $8-12.
