Luther Dickinson - Walter Ruttmann's Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (1927, 65 min.)
Alvin Youngblood Hart - Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's Out West (1918, 25 min.)

Formerly lead guitarist with The Black Crowes and current front-man for North Mississippi Allstars, Memphis-born Luther Dickinson deploys his aggressively Southern sensibility to Walter Ruttmann’s documentary portrait of a Berlin long gone by. A painter and a chamber musician before becoming a filmmaker, Ruttman cast an impressionistic eye over a single day-into-night of life observed in the German capital.

Grammy-winning country-blues guitarist/singer Alvin Youngblood Hart applies his signature rootsy style to “Fatty” Arbuckle’s 1918 spoof on westerns, Out West. Arbuckle co-stars with Buster Keaton against the backdrop of Mad Dog Gulch, “the toughest town in the movies.”
