1st teaser for the brand new documentary by Ballad of Shirley Collins administrators Rob Curry and Tim Plester.
Exploring the sounds and historical past of the Southern States, SOUTHERN JOURNEY (REVISITED) is each a music documentary and a street film. Filmed in opposition to the incendiary backdrop of the 2018 mid-term elections, and set to an excellent soundtrack of blues and bluegrass, hollers and spirituals, the movie retraces the route of an iconic song-collecting journey from 1959 – Alan Lomax’s Southern Journey – in search of out echoes of the previous and hints in the direction of the longer term. The movie contains a haphazard and vibrant forged of characters, and seeks to debunk myths and explode stereotypes a couple of area steeped in a wealthy musical heritage, at a time when the hard-won victories of the Civil Rights motion (which served because the backdrop to the unique Southern Journey) are being challenged.
The movie’s world premiere is October 2019 on the Virginia Movie Pageant in Charlottesville. US and UK theatrical launched scheduled for Spring 2020. official trailer
