From what high school did Jim Morrison graduate and where was it located?
WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE – A FILM ABOUT THE DOORS uncovers historic and previously unseen footage of the illustrious rock quartet and provides new insight into the revolutionary impact of its music and legacy. The film also features scenes from “HWY,” Jim Morrison’s unreleased experimental film from 1969, in which he starred and made with a group of filmmaker friends. Directed by award-winning writer/director Tom DiCillo and narrated by Johnny Depp, the film is a riveting account of the band’s history and the first feature documentary about them.

The film reveals an intimate perspective on the creative chemistry between drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek and singer Jim Morrison -- four brilliant artists who made The Doors one of America’s most iconic and influential rock bands. Using footage shot between the band’s 1965 formation and Morrison’s 1971 death, WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE follows the band from the corridors of UCLA’s film school, where Manzarek and Morrison met, to the stages of sold-out arenas.

WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE captures the zeitgeist and fraction of an era while providing insight into who The Doors were, what they became and what they meant to our culture.

Produced by Wolf Films/Strange Pictures, in association with Rhino Entertainment, and released by Abramorama. Additional credits for WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE include producers Dick Wolf, John Beug, Jeff Jampol, and Peter Jankowski. The film is written and directed by Tom DiCillo (“Johnny Suede,” “Living in Oblivion”). Narrated by Johnny Depp.

The film is opening in Dallas, TX at the Angelika Film Center (Mockingbird Station) on Friday, April 9. The film is rated R for “some sexual content including references, nudity, drug material, and language.”
