Below is an exciting event shared with us by our friends at Alternate ROOTS, a regional arts service organization and an Ethics & the Arts community partner.
Matson Films invites the community to experience the touring presentation of the film, MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE.
Screening in Atlanta on July 13th and 14th, this documentary follows the pilgrimage of Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s Queen of the Blues, to the Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, the birthplace of blues. However, her journey became much more than uncovering the history of a music genre. Chiarelli collaborated with the inmates of the prison and became a part of their hopeful quest for forgiveness through the art of music.
MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE and an accompanied performance by Chiarelli will be in Atlanta on July 13th at 7:30 P.M. at the Plaza Theater and July 14th at 10:30 A.M. at the Sandy Springs Lefont Theaters.
