Description

In Lomax the Songhunter, filmmaker Rogier Kappers seeks to tell Alan Lomax's story by interviewing friends such as Pete Seeger, combined with archival recordings of music greats Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, and footage of the cotton fields, rock quarries and prisons where Lomax captured America’s quintessential music. Finally, Kappers followed the route that Lomax took so many years ago and traveled to remote villages in Spain and Italy, hearing memories and music from the farmers, shepherds and weavers whose songs Lomax recorded decades earlier.
