The documentary, “Break On Thru: A Celebration of Ray Manzarek and The Doors,” directed by Justin Kreutzmann won the Best Feature Film Award at the 2018 Asbury Park Music & Film Festival (APMFF) on Sunday, in a ceremony hosted by radio host Shelli Sonstein, two-time Gracie Award winner, co-host of the Jim Kerr Rock and Roll Morning Show on Q104.3 and APMFF Board member. Break On Thru: A Celebration of Ray Manzarek and The Doors is a concert documentary from a 2016 all-star performance in Los Angeles that John Densmore and Robby Krieger, the two surviving members of The Doors, developed to celebrate what would have been Manzarek’s 70th birthday. As well as the all star concert there’s never before seen footage from The Doors archives and new Interviews from Densmore and Krieger. It’s a one of a kind documentary about a very special person and a legendary rock band.
