Cream Drummer Ginger Baker's Beware Of Mr. Baker Wins Documentary Grand Jury At SXSW

According to, Jay Bulger's documentary on legendary Cream/Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker called Beware Of Mr. Baker won the Documentary Grand Jury prize Tuesday night (March 13) at the South by Southwest film awards, but where it might screen next is under wraps.

"We have been accepted to a bunch of festivals, but they have told us not to tell anyone," Fisher Stevens, one of three producers on the film, said on Sunday, the day after Saturday's world premiere screening.

The film will screen one last time in in Austin, on March 16 at the Paramount. "We hope there will be a lot of musicians in the audience," Stevens says, figuring that's a key audience for providing word of mouth marketing.

Rush's Neil Peart, Eric Clapton, The Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten, Carlos Santana and The Rolling Stones' Charlie Watts appear in the film.

I saw it in Amsterdam, it was brilliant. I even did post a question to Mr. Baker. He is a force of nature, like a vulkano or an earth shake. Nothing to do about it. Wat the documentair has showned is a different look at things, a good one, I was moved, really moved. Great work from Jay Bulger, great. Also, we should not forget, there were other times, very different.

sincerely, O. Veira
