Discovering Documentary Film Club Meeting on September 26
On Monday, September 26, The Discovering Documentary Film Club will open the fall series with “Lomax the Songhunter” by Rogier Kappers.
“Lomax” is the story of folklorist Alan Lomax, who spent over six decades working to promote knowledge and appreciation of the world’s folk music.
Along the way he recorded the world’s folk tunes before they would permanently disappear with the rise of the modern music industry.
Kappers tells Lomax’s story by interviewing Pete Seeger and combines it with archival recordings of music greats Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly and footage of the cotton fields, rock quarries and prisons where Lomax had captured America's quintessential music.
The filmmaker also follows the route that Lomax took when traveling to remote villages in Spain and Italy, hearing memories and music from the farmers, shepherds and weavers, whose songs Lomax recorded decades before.
