In this new live music and film piece, acclaimed musician Jenny Scheinman presents the captivating visual world of H. Lee Waters, who documented more than 118 small towns in the southeast between 1936 and 1942. Waters' films are of regular people going about their lives - mill workers streaming out of factories, a mother and daughter dancing on a dirt road, an old man reading a war-time headline and children racing in slow motion toward a huge wooden teeter totter. Scheinman and filmmaker Finn Taylor have re-edited these iconic images to Scheinman's music, creating a new movie that speaks to any community as much as to the towns where it was filmed.
