A University of Iowa Student is looking for help with a BLUES FILM…
As anybody can attest to, being a student is not easy. In the University of Iowa’s MFA graduate film production program, producing an ambitious period film on a shoestring budget doesn’t come any easy…But Jesse Kreitzer wants to tell a story of a important part of BLUES HISTORY
He’s written to ask for our help to bring an important story to life…A film about the story of ALAN LOMAX. He was a very important figure in the telling of Blues History.
In 1941, a 27-year-old folklorist named Alan Lomax is sent from the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. to the segregated south to record an oral history of the blues lineage.
Equipped with 500 pounds of field recording equipment powered by his car battery, Lomax ventured on a wondrous odyssey through the Mississippi Delta and returned with the most beautiful and harrowing songs that music has ever known.
He could use some help to get this project done, and that’s where we can help…Here’s a link with this story, and you can check it out there, and help him make this project a reality, here’s the link:
