“A Rare Documentary”

width="300"
As Chris Hyams said in an antimusic.com review, “Still Bill is one of those rare documentaries that delivers what it promises: an incredible journey into the life of a legendary artist.”

Many people might wonder what happened to Bill Withers. After coming out with some of the most popular songs of the decade, Bill Withers stepped out of the spotlight, refusing interviews for 23 years. But that was before documentary filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack convinced him to share his story. Now, their documentary gives us a deeper look into the life of Bill and his decision to stop performing.

You can read what the press is saying about the film here.

The film screening occurs Sunday November 8th, the final day of our Festival!
And did I mention Motown legend Jimmy Ingram joins the event? The ticket price includes Ingram’s live concert after the film. Tickets cost $30 for the general public, and as always we treat our First Person Members to a discount – only $20 no matter when you order tickets! Become a member and buy tickets today!
