LOCATION: Minneapolis Convention Center, Auditorium 2
This film from the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress, re-images Alan Lomax’s 1938 song-collecting expedition to the American Upper Midwest through a filmic reconstruction of his trip, utilizing long-forgotten archival film and obsolete disk recordings he documented on his three month journey into a little-known corner of the country.
