Documentary Screening : And We Were Young

And We Were Young is an oral history/documentary about American soldiers – “The Doughboys” Minolta DSC- in World War One, animated entirely with silhouettes and colored paper. Director/Animator Andy Smetanka took three years to make the film, cutting out each piece of character and scenery (some of the human figures have 12 or more moving parts) and shooting almost a quarter of a million frames of Super 8 film, one at a time. The resulting film is one-of-a-kind in every way … a brutal, beautiful and mesmerizing account of America’s corner on the “War to End All Wars”.

Biography: Andy Smetanka has lived in Montana, Minnesota, Finland and Sweden for 44 years. In the 25 he has spent in Missoula, MT, he has been a dishwasher, writer, rocker, editor, filmmaker, teacher, husband and father of three. He has made animated music videos for Pearl Jam and the Decemberists, and other recent collaborators include Isabella Rossellini, Jody Shapiro (director of Burt’s Buzz), and Canadian auteur Guy Maddin. His next feature will probably be a documentary about Missoula (to celebrate his quarter-century of residency). And We Were Young is his first feature.

 The Fred Eaglesmith Travelling Steam Show

Fred EaglesmithThe heart of rock and roll is alive and well with Fred Eaglesmith’s 20th album, Tambourine. Fusing together all of Fred’s past influences, the result is pure rock ‘n ‘roll reminiscent of 1966.

Eaglesmith is a veteran of the music industry and at the same time is about as far away from actually participating in today’s music industry as one could be. Never operating within anyone’s boundaries, he continues to set the standard for independent artists everywhere. While blazing his own often colourful path he has avoided most of the traps and pitfalls of his peers, his career reads like a manual on how to succeed in music today without trying to fit into the traditional business models.

Tambourine was recorded live off the floor using an eight-track analogue console capturing the entire band playing together in the same room. Created during a month long session in an old hall in the hamlet of Vittoria, Ontario, Fred consciously stayed far away from anything that is popular in the mainstream music right now. The result a combination of Eaglesmith’s craftsmanship in songwriting and a fusion of rock ‘n’ roll circa 1966, Motown, and even Tejano influences. Never one to shy away from taking chances with his music and career direction, Tambourine is no exception.
