SUMMIT, NJ - The Film Society of Summit will host the first area screening of 'Colin Hay: Waiting For My Real Life', featuring a post-film screening discussion with director Nate Gowtham. The event will be be held at MONDO, January 6 at 8 p.m.

The documentary is the inspirational story of singer-songwriter Colin Hay, former front man of 'Men At Work', the Australian rock band that took home the 1983 Grammy Award for Best New Artist and sold more than 30 million records worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The film follows Hay from his earliest days in Scotland, through his family's emigration to Australia, to the massive, global success of his band, to the depths of addiction and failure, to a slow climb back up the ladder seeking relevance, artistic freedom and ultimately, transcendence. Featuring interviews with Hugh Jackman, Mick Fleetwood, Sia Furler, Guy Pearce and many others, 'Colin Hay - Waiting For My Real Life' is the inspiring story of a true artist.
