Item Details
This exquisite film by Guillaume Dero showcases Bill Frisell’s unique take on the photographs of Mike Disfarmer, taken during the Great Depression.

In the 1930s, Mike Disfarmer shot a long series of portraits of the townspeople in Heber Springs, Arkansas. This recently excavated gallery of photographs is reminiscent of America’s heartland, as well as the indelible times of the Great Depression. Bill Frisell took on this body of work as the main inspiration for a musical recording project, displaying his gift for revisiting and revitalizing American music. This DVD captures the essence of The Disfarmer Project performed live, as the sounds of Frisell’s ensemble mingle with Disfarmer’s pictures to achieve the fullest realization of the music. English w/ French Sub (Surround), Not Rated, Run Time: 129 min.

Quotes
“Like David Lynch, post-jazz guitarist Bill Frisell has a knack for insinuating an odd haze around the most wholesome aspects of Americana … a set of 26 evocative miniatures.” — TIME OUT NEW YORK

“A provocative soundscape … creatively restless, Frisell is best suited for exploring vast territory and responding with imaginative integrity, which is evidenced on Disfarmer.” — BILLBOARD
