The New Joni Mitchell Film & Community Kick off Party.
Joni Mitchell’s new film, “The Fiddle and the Drum”, a narrative ballet, will kick-off the 8th Annual Woodstock Film Festival in good ol’ hippie town USA.
The Festival’s press desk tells me… “This very special 55 minute extravaganza is performed to Mitchell’s provocative music and is a celebration of the profoundly humanistic questions and testimonies that are expressed so poetically by Mitchell, a world-renowned poet. Three art forms combine as the commanding dancers move their powerful bodies and ethereal souls within the world of sound, color and texture that Ms. Mitchell has brought forth.”
“The Fiddle” also addresses Mitchell’s concerns with environmental neglect.
And…the singer is credited with designing the entire set of the film.
Screening is this Wednesday Oct. 10, 7pm at the Bearsville Theater
Kick-Off Community Party to follow.
