Rock That Uke (2003)
Followed by Q&A with co-director, Sean Anderson
Plus, special performance by the Lexingtones Uke Group
Rock That Uke returns to the scene. The documentary is “quirkily philosophical cinematic love poem that examines the near mystical allure of the ukulele and the recent wave of alternative and experimental musicians who have taken up the four-stringed underdog” (from http://rockthatuke.com/). Lexington filmmaker, and Rock That Uke’s co-director, Sean Anderson, will discuss the film following the screening. Afterward, the Lexingtones Uke Group will take the stage for a grand finale performance.

Pilgrim Song (2012)
Followed by Q&A with director, Martha Stephens
Pilgrim Song follows James, a pink-slipped, fiddle-playing music teacher through the Sheltowee Trace Trail of Eastern Kentucky as he ventures to find “the source of his restless dissatisfaction.” Director and Kentucky native, Martha Stephens, “transforms reality into poetry,” according to Filmmaker Magazine. Stephens joins us on Saturday evening to discuss the film. Pilgrim Song premiered at the 2012 SXSW film festival and has been making a strong run of festivals throughout the year.
