Movie Info

Known as the father of American primitive guitar, many consider John Fahey to be a foundational figure in American music. As both musician and musicologist, Fahey made a fundamental contribution to our understanding and appreciation of such music genres as Delta blues, Appalachian bluegrass, New Orleans jazz and even industrial and electronica, influencing everyone from Glenn Jones to Sonic Youth. IN SEARCH OF BLIND JOE DEATH combines interviews, performances and archival footage with animation in a kinetic, musically charged tribute to a tremendously influential composer, guitarist, author and provocateur. Interviewees include Pete Townshend, Joey Burns of Calexico, Chris Funk of The Decemberists and renowned radio personality Dr. Demento, aka Barry Hansen. (c) First Run Features
