Meet the Filmmaker: Sam Pollard

In June 1964 hundreds of college students traveled to Mississippi for Freedom Summer. That same month, two groups of obsessed blues fansfrom different coasts and unknown to each othertraveled to Mississippi to find two blues musicians and coax them out of retirement. Thirty years earlier, Son House and Skip James had recorded some of the most memorable music of their era, but now they seemed lost to time. Mississippi was tense and violent, and on June 21 these stories collided in memorable and tragic fashion.

With deep historical knowledge and nimble storytelling techniques, Mr. Pollard explores how idealism, horrific brutality and artistic genius converged in a single historical moment. (A NYTimes Critics Pick)  A.O. Scott, The New York Times

The 1960s political clashes and cultural revelations were essentially linked, and equally liberating. When those young, white blues fans found Son House and Skip James, they stumbled upon the past, but also the future.  Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
