About the film

French filmmaker Nicolas Drolc wanted to make a film about contemporary American roots, folk and gospel music. But he couldn’t afford to leave his home base known as “the bungalow” in northeastern France. He solved the geographical problem by inviting his favorite musicians to visit him, play in a local dive bar and subject themselves to improvised questioning and field recordings the next morning at Drolc’s dwellings. The result is a loose, yet intimate discourse featuring Alabama troubadour Andy Dale Petty, Danny Kroha of the legendary Detroit group the Gories, the one-eyed soul-saver Reverend Deadeye, California folk prophet Willy Tea Taylor, folksinger and teacher Possessed by Paul James and basement-gospel artist the Dad Horse Experience.
