You See Me Laughin': The Last of the Hill Country Bluesmen (directed by Mandy Stein)
"You See Me Laughin" takes us onto the road and into the homes of R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, T-Model Ford, Cedell Davis, Johnny Farmer, and Asie Payton - musicians whose lives of violence, poverty, chance, charm, and luck reinforce the precarious relationship between record label and artist.
Memphis '69: The 1969 Memphis Country Blues Festival
Fat Possum Records will release the Memphis ’69 documentary film, capturing three days and two nights of the sweltering, interracial 1969 Memphis Country Blues Festival, held within weeks of a KKK rally at the same location. Full song performances include a number of iconic Blues Hall of Famers such as Rufus Thomas & The Bar-Kays; slide guitar great Booker “Bukka” White; Sleepy John Estes with Yank Rachel; Texas’ Johnny Winter; Memphis’ own Furry Lewis, Beale Street sweeper who opened for the Rolling Stones; and North Mississippi bluesman Mississippi Fred McDowell. There are no talking heads, just the unfiltered shots of the concert and its surroundings from the time.
Very Extremely Dangerous
Jerry McGill slipped from a rock'n'roll career into a life of crime, robbing banks and running from the FBI while touring with legends of country music and appearing in movies. After three jail sentences (under two different names), aged 70 and suffering from terminal cancer, he announced his return to recording. We followed a heavily armed McGill and his fiance Joyce through four states as he stole whatever's not nailed down and charmed his way into and out of trouble. But when you point a camera at a man who will do anything for notoriety, how responsible are you when he goes too far?
