Lydia Loveless is a rock and roll prodigy from Columbus, Ohio, who began making records and touring when she was barely out of her teens. With her tiny frame and her voice as big as all outdoors, she’s assembled a band of veteran musicians whom she leads with confidence and charisma despite her relative youth. Gorman Bechard’s film combines interview and performance footage to give insight into the exacting creative process of a musical savant. It also goes beyond the typical music documentary in asking how great music continues to be made at a time when traditional mechanisms of music sales and marketing have collapsed. Synopsis provided by Hell’s Half Mile Festival.
THIS SCREENING INCLUDES A FEATURED SHORT:

The free-spirited, Arkansas-born entertainer has been touring the world as a self-proclaimed "art-action provocateur" for over three decades.
