...the latest news on a cool project we've been keeping an eye on for some time now:
From the TATSOL email inbox:
"We recently completed our documentary "McCrea 1971" about the festival and wanted to inform you that the premiere of the film will be at the Columbia Theater in Hammond, La. at 7 PM on October 21st as part of the annual Fanfare Festival. The film runs about 30 minutes long."

Title: McCrea 1971
McCrea 1971 combines archived newsreel footage with interviews of musicians and individuals who attended The Celebration of Life. Due to regulations prohibiting attendees from bringing cameras into the festival grounds, video footage has been difficult to track down. Fortunately, a select few individuals who smuggled their film past the multitudes of sheriff’s deputies at the front gate have allowed us to digitize their 16mm and 35mm film for use in McCrea 1971. Additional film screening dates and locations are expected to be announced shortly.
