      Audience Member It's a documentary that utilizes interviews, still pictures and animated reproduction of actions, that effectively tells the stories of white young men hunting down long lost blues artists and young white northerners looking to make a difference in the civil rights struggle. All adding to a boiling hot pot called Mississippi in 1964. There is suspense, humor and of course, acoustic blues. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
