Mandatory viewing for any country music fan! Featuring early performances by Townes Van Zandt, Rodney Crowell, The Charlie Daniels Band, David Allan Coe, and several other members of the “Outlaw Country” movement, this previously hard-to-find documentary chronicles intimate moments with the musicians who changed the sound of Nashville forever. From glimpses of their hard-partying, friendly-pickin’ ways to seeing Van Zandt bring the legendary Uncle Seymour Washington to tears with a heartfelt rendition of “Waiting Around to Die,” Szalapski’s camera captures every facet of this important cultural moment just before it broke.
Make it a double feature! Channeling the spirit of this country classic, don’t miss the present-day follow-up with Heartworn Highways Revisited, screening at 9:00pm.
