Bill Frisell - The Disfarmer Project


Region: All
English/French Sub-Titles
Running Time: 129 mins.

In the 1930s, Mike Disfarmer shot a long series of portraits of the townspeople in Heber Springs, Arkansas. This gallery of photographs is both reminiscent of America's heartland as well as the indelible times of The Great Depression. Bill Frisell used this body of work as the main inspiration for what became a musical recording project of his own, displaying his gift for revisiting and revitalizing American music. This film, by Guillaume Dero, captures the essence of this project performed live as the sounds of Frisell's ensemble mingle with Disfarmer's pictures to achieve the fullest realization of the music.
