In 1941, folklorist Alan Lomax was sent by the Library of Congress to the Mississippi Delta to record an oral history of the blues. Hauling five hundred pounds of audio equipment powered by his car battery, Lomax ventured across nameless roads to discover the most beautiful and harrowing songs ever sung.Presented by the Association for Cultural Equity, Alan Lomax's founding organization, this spirited folktale reimagines his meeting with Bill Henley, an elderly recluse living in the backwoods of Lula, Mississippi. Starring James "Tail Draggerî" Jones, protege of Chicago bluesman Howlin' Wolf, and Georg Koszulinski as Alan Lomax, the film honors a fearless crusader and the countless people he gave voice to, in both their human and mythic capacities.
