LOMAX (2014)

In 1941, folklorist Alan Lomax traveled from the Library of Congress to the Mississippi Delta to record an oral history of the blues. Equipped with 500 pounds of audio equipment powered by his car battery, he ventured across nameless roads to discover the most beautiful and harrowing songs ever known.

This spirited folktale reimagines his meeting with Bill Henley, a 73-year-old recluse living in the backwoods of Lula, Mississippi.  Presented in partnership with The Association for Cultural Equity. ACE was founded by Alan Lomax to explore and preserve the world's expressive traditions. More info at culturalequity.org.
