The Smart Studios Story
USA | Wendy Schneider | 90 minutes | Wed 4/27 @9pm | Scruffy City Hall

The post-70’s explosion of independent music in America has many traceable roots, each with a compelling story. One of its most significant has never been told until now. Drawing on never-before-seen archival footage, in-depth-interviews with musicians and producers, and a mighty soundtrack, THE SMART STUDIOS STORY reveals the pivotal Midwest link to the global rise of 1990’s Alternative Rock and the unassuming Madison, Wisconsin recording studio at its center. If you’ve ever been touched by the music of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, L7 or their peers, you’ve been touched by the music created at Smart Studios, the legendary recording facility founded by Butch Vig and Steve Marker.

After the film there will be a short Q&A with director Wendy Schneider and a Skype call with Butch Vig and Steve Marker .

In Pursuit of Silence
USA | Patrick Shen | 81 minutes | Thr 4/28 @7pm | Regal Cinemas Downtown West

Beginning with an ode to John Cage’s seminal silent composition 4’33”, the sights and sounds of this film, the experience of which the Austin Chronicle describes as “reminiscent of seeing 1982’s Koyaanisqatsi for the first time,” delicately interweave with silence to create a contemplative and cinematic experience that works its way through frantic minds and into the quiet spaces of hearts. As much a work of devotion as it is a documentary, In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of our relationship with silence and the impact of noise on our lives. From the Desert Fathers and mothers of the third century AD who became a model for early Christian monasticism to John Cage’s 4’33” which would go onto inspire a generation of artists, humankind has had a long fascination with silence. Yet in our race towards modernity, amidst all the technological innovation and the rapid growth of our cities, silence is now quickly passing into legend. From causing aggressive behavior to hundreds of thousands of heart attacks around the world, there is no aspect of human life that noise does not infringe upon. Silence as a resource for respite and renewal from the sensory onslaught of our modern lives is now more important than ever before.

Presenting Princess Shaw
Israel |Ido Haar | 80 minutes |Thr 4/28 @9pm | Regal Cinemas Downtown West 

The true story of the incredible Princess Shaw and the enigmatic composer Kutiman, who discovers her from the other side of the world.

By day, Samantha Montgomery cares for the elderly in one of New Orleans’s toughest neighborhoods. By night, she writes and sings her own songs as Princess Shaw on her confessional YouTube channel. Raw and vulnerable, her voice is a diamond in the rough.

Across the globe, Ophir Kutiel creates video mash ups of amateur Youtube performers. Known as Kutiman, he is a composer, a musician, and a pioneering video artist embraced by the world of fine art. Kutiman “transforms sampling into a multimedia art”, whether at his home on a kibbutz in Israel or at a live performance at the Guggenheim in New York.

Two strangers, almost 7,000 miles apart, begin to build a song. The film unfolds as Kutiman pairs Princess Shaw’s emotional performances in a beautiful expression of generosity and compassion, revealing the bonafide star underneath and her fight to never give up on her dreams.

Placed inside Edwyn’s mind, we embark on a remarkable journey from the brink of death back to language, music, life and love. With the help of his wife Grace, Edwyn submerges himself in a landscape of memories, as he tries to unlock the story of his past.

Born to be Blue
USA | Robert Budreau | 97 minutes | Fri 4/29 @9pm | Regal Cinemas Downtown West

Ethan Hawke lights up the screen as jazz legend Chet Baker, whose tumultuous life is thrillingly reimagined with wit, verve, and style to burn. In the 1950s, Baker was one of the most famous trumpeters in the world, renowned as both a pioneer of the West Coast jazz scene and an icon of cool. By the 1960s, he was all but washed up, his career and personal life in shambles due to years of heroin addiction. 

In his innovative anti-biopic, director Robert Budreau zeroes in on Baker’s life at a key moment in the 1960s, just as the musician attempts to stage a hard-fought comeback, spurred in part by a passionate romance with a new flame (Carmen Ejogo). Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds with all the stylistic brio and improvisatory genius of great jazz.

Docu Shorts
The best short docs from around the world peppered with some music videos peppered in to punctuate the beats:

DANCEHALL IS US | Russia |Egor Papulov | 19:15 |

In the inner city neighborhoods of Kingston, Jamaica, music and dance are much more than just ways of letting off steam. Dancehall culture has emerged and developed since the 1970s, born in the halls where people gathered to talk, flirt and dance. In contrast to reggae music, with its spiritual themes, dancehall is generally more about sexuality, violence, materialism and dancing. Its development parallels in some ways that of hip hop culture in the US, with artists like Rihanna crossing over.

This short documentary explores dancehall from the perspective of its creators (both musicians and dancers) and its historians. And if that sounds dry, we’re going to turn it up LOUD!

ʻĀINA: THAT WHICH FEEDS US | USA | Josh Thome | 23:00 |

ʻĀINA (pronounced “eye-nah”) means, “that which feeds us” in the Hawaiian language. The film highlights a way to address some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai – and of island Earth. That may sound like an outstanding claim, but as ʻĀINA vividly illustrates, such is the power of agriculture and consumer choices for people and the planet.

West of Her: World Premiere
USA | Ethan Warren | 87 minutes | Sat 4/27 @7pm 

WORLD PREMIERE

Alone and adrift in life, Dan signs on with a mysterious organization, agreeing to roam the country with an enigmatic stranger named Jane, working by night, laying small linoleum tiles in the streets of towns across America, each bearing the same cryptic message.

Dan feels like a jigsaw piece from the wrong puzzle, that the tiles represent something bigger, and that their mysterious employers know vital secrets, while Jane sees their task as a whimsical lark. Though Dan is an open book, Jane refuses to reveal anything about her life, or what she might know of their employers, who communicate only with her.

As they travel, growing closer even as they butt heads, Dan’s sincerity softens Jane’s cynical exterior. Their contentious relationship grows and deepens, changing both of their beliefs about what they’re doing, until they’re forced to choose between their work and the possibility of a future together.

Filmed across ten states in iconic American locations from the sweeping midwest plains to the majestic Rocky Mountains, the stark southwest desert to the busy streets of Memphis, West of Her is a film for anyone who’s ever longed for adventure, romance, and a life of meaning.

There will be a brief Q&A with the filmmaker and composer after the film.

Ben Sollee

Kentucky-born cellist and composer Ben Sollee likes to keep moving. He kicked off 2014 with the release of his score for the documentary film Maidentrip. In March, he performed at Carnegie Hall as part of a tribute to Paul Simon. Throughout April and May, he was out supporting song-writer William Fitzsimmons. This September, he toured for two weeks in Europe and returned to the United States to perform with the Charlotte Ballet. If you’ve seen him perform, you know it’s not to missed. For listeners just discovering Ben’s music, you’ll find that there’s a lot more to it than just songs.

Like his contemporaries Chris Thile and Abigail Washburn, Sollee’s music is difficult to pin down. Following a performance at the Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, the New York Times remarked how Sollee’s “...meticulous, fluent arrangements continually morphed from one thing to another. Appalachian mountain music gave way to the blues, and one song was appended with a fragment from a Bach cello suite, beautifully played.” It’s Ben’s quality of narrative and presence on stage that unifies his musical influences. However, always on the move, Sollee’s musical career has expanded beyond the stage.
