Seven Signs: Music Myth And The American South

Fri 15 May 2009 // 20:00

Seven Signs Bristol première.

(Fri 15th / 8pm / £5/4)

Described as both “dignified and disarming” by author Bill Friskics-Warren, the new film “SEVEN SIGNS” focuses on the music, mythology and faith that persist, despite heavy modernization, in the American South. The is the directorial debut for J.D. Wilkes, the artist/musician acclaimed as “the closest thing there is to the Ambassador of Genuine, Traditional Southern Culture.” Wilkes also
contributes to the chilling “SEVEN SIGNS’” soundtrack...alongside the rawest talent The Delta and Appalachia have to offer. With these strong southern roots, the filmmaker has made a profound, empathetic statement that celebrates the eccentricities and traditions of an increasingly marginalized area of America. Yet it is an area whose cultural identity stubbornly continues to thrive in the underground today...

Before the film a short set from Miss Anna. Miss Anna Kronist has been on the road since 1939 singing songs of heartbreak and railroads, whiskey and dust bowls. Singing her way around the world, from New York to Stockholm, London to Rio she will touch your soul and maybe take a little piece of it with her when she goes.
