I had the pleasure to participate in the 6th Annual Tucson Film & Music Festival, which wrapped up last week. The festival program offered an impressive variety of short and feature-length selections, including several state, regional, and world premieres.
As the festival name suggests, many of these works blended film and music. Among the more lyrical documentaries were Nicholas Kleczewski’s On a Carousel of Sound, We Go Round, about the touring and recording experiences of band The Snake the Cross the Crown, and Gianfranco Firriolo’s La faccia della terra (The Face of the Earth), which features Italian musician Vinicio Capossela and Calexico.
