I AM THE BLUES

United States | 2015 | Daniel Cross

I AM THE BLUES

This new documentary takes viewers on a musical journey through the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta, and Moonshine-soaked BBQs of the North Mississippi Hill Country. The film visits longtime blues musicians, some in their 80s and 90s, who once toured the Chitlin’ Circuit and still live in the Deep South—among them, 2017 Grammy winner Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, and Little Freddie King. DCP. 106 min.
