In the 1930s Mike Disfarmer shot a long series of portraits of the townspeople in Heber Springs Arkansas. This recently excavated gallery of photographs is reminiscent of America's heartland as well as the indelible times of the Great Depression. Bill Frisell took on this body of work as the main inspiration for a musical recording project displaying his gift for revisiting and revitalizing American music. This DVD captures the essence of the Disfarmer Project performed live as the sounds of Frisell's ensemble mingle with Disfarmer's pictures to achieve the fullest realization of the music. English w/ French Sub (Surround) Not Rated Run Time: 129 min.
