Who You Gonna Call? – Watch the trailer for the Ray Parker Jr. documentary

Filmmaker Fran Strine explores the riveting true story of the man who wrote and recorded the global smash hit song Ghostbusters, which became a universally recognized pop culture classic.

Ray Parker Jr. granted Strine unprecedented access to reveal his never-before-told life story – from overcoming nearly impossible odds growing up on the segregated streets of Detroit in the 1960s to achieving his dream of getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and winning a GRAMMY. Who You Gonna Call? pulls back the curtain to reveal Parker’s now little-known yet legendary career, with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Clive Davis and other music legends sharing what it was like to collaborate with Parker, both on stage and off.

“When most people think of Ray Parker Jr they think of ‘Ghostbusters.’” said Strine. “Yes, he’s had great success with that song, but Ray is so much more than that. The list of legendary artists Ray has performed with and written for is staggering and people don’t know this side of him.“

Ray Parker Jr spoke to Variety and said, “At a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a musician. It was my dream. My life. I did everything and anything I could to make that happen. I’d like to say that luck was very much on my side, but I think dedication and determination to make my dreams come true played a larger part. I always tell young musicians that if you want something then work hard at it and go after it. When you find something you’re good at, the fun part just comes along for the ride! Also don’t think about Option 2. Make Option 1 a reality. You are the only one to make it happen. Know that creating music is a collaborative process, so always deliver, have fun and enjoy the process. This usually guarantees callbacks.”

Who You Gonna Call? is on digital platforms from 7th June 2022.
