The 78 Project Movie (DVD)
Directed by Alex Steyermark
Based on the acclaimed web series but with all-new footage, The 78 Project Movie is a journey across America to record today's musical artists as they perform the early American songs that inspired a century of popular music -- exactly as they were originally recorded, instantaneously, on one-of-a-kind 78rpm lacquer discs. Inspired by Alan Lomax and his quest to capture music where it lived throughout the early 20th Century, the film celebrates the artistry and craft that spontaneously captured America's most authentic musical forms.
