Her work is now  in galleries around the world. This insightful documentary is also an amazing detective story. (PG)

The Mississippi River flood in 1927 was the most destructive flood in American History.  27,000 square miles of land was inundated, causing the mass exodus of sharecroppers.  The Great Migration from southern to northern cities like Chicago caused a blossoming of the blues that still informs Amercian music today.  Filmmaker Bill Morrison and composer/guitarist Bill Frisell use music and historic images to put the audience in the middle of this transitional time.

"Destined for a long life in museums and history classes alike, this is cinema as art, and a classic" -Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
