Roe Family Singers + Charlie Parr with Cochochi

Part of Summer Music & Movies 2013: Roadways

Music: Roe Family Singers + Charlie Parr; DJ Bill DeVille

“Charlie Parr is one of the greatest musicians and human beings I know.… He has brought wonder and excitement to this music.” —Alan Sparhawk (Low)

Kick off your shoes for this old-time jubilee in the summer sun. The Roe Family Singers unpack their saws, jugs, and banjos and dip into a refreshing distillation of traditional folk and country. Legend-in-the-making Charlie Parr then takes the stage with his “pulse-quickening, riveting Americana rooted in Depression-era folk” (Sunday Herald Sun, Australia). The set ends with a rollicking all-player jamboree.

Movie: Cochochi

Directed by Israel Cárdenas and Laura Ameilia Guzmán

Evaristo and Tony, brothers from the Sierra Tarahumara in northwest Mexico, have just completed elementary school and start their summer vacation. A stolen horse and a trip to their grandfather’s village on the other side of the canyon soon lead them on a journey into unexpected worlds. Cochochi premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2007 and won numerous festival awards around the world. 2007, video, in Spanish with English subtitles, 87 minutes.
