PrincetonPL - American Folk Music remixed
Annotation:Shot in silent-film style at the Southern California gallery of graphic designer/illustrator Shepard Fairey, the film stars Young as an author who visits an art gallery in hopes of finding illustrations for his new book about great American songs. Once the author finds the proper illustrations, we get to hear the songs from Americana accompanied by film footage from the great silent film era, including the work of legendary director D.W. Griffith. --NPR
