The Blues anchors a multi-media celebration that raises awareness of the
blues and its contribution to American culture and music worldwide. Under
the guiding vision of Executive Producer Martin Scorsese, seven directors
will explore the blues through their own personal styles and perspectives.
The films in the series are motivated by a central theme: how the blues
evolved from parochial folk tunes to a universal language.
The seven-part film series includes:
Feel Like Going Home by Martin Scorsese
The Soul of a Man by Wim Wenders
The Road to Memphis by Richard Pearce
Warming by the Devil's Fire by Charles Burnett
Godfathers and Sons by Marc Levin
Red, White & Blues by Mike Figgis
Piano Blues by Clint Eastwood
