WORLD PREMIERE Gazi “Dusty” Simelane and Linda “Stones”  are country music singers living in Swaziland. The film captures their wondrous ten-day road trip through the American south, gifting us with great music and leaving us questioning the intersectional issues of race, power, and whether any demographic can lay claim to country music, or any other art form. – Bedatri Choudhury
