Autumnal Greetings from Tamarack Productions World HQ!!!
Pleased to offer this wee update on the continuing progress of In Search of Blind Joe Death – The Saga of John Fahey
This evening the film screens for a fourth time in the past year in London, UK at Goldsmiths, University of London. The film will be followed by live music and a discussion with a music journalist and anthropologist.
The film appears at WOMEX World Music Expo in Cardiff, Wales, Oct. 23-27.
The doc is slated for broadcast by BBC4 in December.
The USA theatrical release continues with upcoming screenings in California, Massachusetts, New Mexico and North Carolina. (We at World HQ are particularly excited about the Albuquerque screening – that city is also the title of our favourite Neil Young song!) Our John Fahey film is screened in tandem with Approximately Nels Cline, a fine film about the guitarist Cline.
An Italian tour of the film begins in Rome on November 14 and Udine on December 13 with a Verona screening date TBA.
We will soon confirm dates for screenings in Pune, India. Stay tuned.
The film appears this month in Montevideo, Uruguay as it continues its journey with BAFICI Itinerante, a touring best of Festival from BAFICI 2013 (Buenos Aires Festival of Independent Cinema) where the film had its South American premiere in April.
Closer to home, the film will screen at Toronto Reel Indie Film Festival RiFF on October 19.
The DVD with extras including performances by Fahey, Chris Funk of The Decemberists, vinyl maven Joe Bussard and an extended interview segment with Pete Townshend will be available in mid-November.
