WORLD PREMIERE Musicwood is a documentary that needs to be seen by anyone who cares about guitar music. For hundreds of years guitars have been made the same way, but now, that could all change. A band of famous guitar-makers (Bob Taylor, Chris Martin and Dave Berryman of Gibson) travel together into a primeval rain forest. Their mission: negotiate with Native American loggers before it’s too late for acoustic guitars. The result is the funny, complex and heartbreaking story of a profound cultural conflict and a battle over natural resources. Artists featured in the film: Kaki King, Steve Earle, Yo La Tengo, The Antlers, Lampchop, Turin Brakes and Sergius Gregory.
