Sound & Vision
Sound & Vision brings together siblings of form through a new music film series in partnership with DRIP (records). In addition to screening both repertory and contemporary music films, local bands will perform live before each screening, bringing a bit more action to Columbia’s Saturday night.
Featuring a live performance from Zach Seibert of the E.Z. Shakes!
Inspired by the life of Blaze Foley (Ben Dickey), the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. Blaze weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present, and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen (Alia Shawkat); his last, dark night on earth; and the impact that his songs and death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.
Directed by Ethan Hawke.
