2018, 99 minutes, directed by Skizz Cyzyk

19­-years-­in-­the-­making, ICEPICK TO THE MOON is a feature length documentary about Rev. Fred Lane, the pants­less, Band Aid­adorned performer who achieved a worldwide cult following starting in the Eighties on college radio when the Shimmy Disc label made Lane’s records easier to find.

Obscure stripmine crooner, Rev. Fred Lane, is described by his obsessed fans as “subversive,” “completely satirical,” “the Dada Duke Ellington,” and “Demon Frank Sinatra.” His fans have spent years examining every detail of Fred Lane’s albums, and yet whatever information they have found out about their hero has only led them deeper into blissful confusion. ICEPICK TO THE MOON not only examines the cult of Fred Lane fans, but also pulls the curtain back on the mysterious artist who is Fred Lane, from his early involvement with the Raudelunas arts collective in Alabama in the Seventies, to his current occupation making whirligigs to sell on the arts and crafts show circuit.

Skizz Cyzyk is an actor, writer, musician, filmmaker, artist, and film festival careerist, having held positions at MicroCineFest, Maryland Film Festival, Slamdance, and Atlanta Film Festival, as well as serving on juries and advisory boards at many other festivals. A filmmaker since 1983, his director credits include Hit & Stay, Freaks In Love, David Fair Is The King, Alfred Jarry & ‘Pataphysics, Little Castles, Managers Corner, and music videos for Beach House, Young Fresh Fellows, and many others. He writes for music and film magazines, is on the Board of Directors for Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, and performs music with The Stents, Go Pills, The Jennifers, Garage Sale, Half Japanese and Mink Stole & Her Wonderful Band.
