The Man is the Music

WORLD PREMIERE This short documentary is not so much a portrait of the prolific artist and musician Lonnie Holley, as an experiential reflection on art as a way of life. Holley’s work is a product of the environment in which he was raised  “Jim Crow Alabama “and reflects the impact of being socially discarded. Holley compulsively creates and his work is a means to deal with loss and survive. It’s through his unique perspective and the process of creating beauty that Lonnie draws us into an imaginative and captivating world.
