I have written about the documentary, American Epic in the past here on this blog. It is a series of music films focusing on the birth of modern music in the USA.
This film series kindled my interest in musicology. American Epic comprises a three-part historical music documentary, a feature-length performance film, and a set of companion album releases. The project is executive-produced by Jack White, T Bone Burnett, and Robert Redford, directed by Bernard MacMahon and written by Bernard MacMahon, Allison McGourty, and Duke Erikson of Lo-Max Films.
