JASON ISBELL: RUNNING WITH OUR EYES CLOSED (with a post-screening discussion with Jason Isbell and filmmaker Sam Jones)

In his own words, renowned singer and songwriter @jasonisbell takes us on an unexpected journey through his musical evolution and creative process as he goes into the studio to record his new album “Reunions” with his band The 400 Unit. With striking candor and honesty, Isbell lays bare his difficult childhood, his struggles with addiction and relationships, funneling all his pain and private battles into his music. When the COVID-19 pandemic arrives and forces him and his family into lockdown, Isbell must confront the self-doubt and fears that isolation brings to a recovering addict and artist, even as the album releases to rave reviews.

Directed and produced by @samjonespictures (HBO’s “Tony Hawk: Until The Wheels Fall Off”) and executive produced by Emmy® winners Mark and Jay Duplass (HBO’s “The Lady and the Dale”) and The Ringer’s Bill Simmons (HBO’s “Andre The Giant,” “Showbiz Kids”).

⭐️ “Masterful… A story of natural wonder, elemental beauty, and human folly.” —LA Times
⭐️ “A film of sturdy and stunning beauty.” —Sight & Sound
⭐️ “A cinematic original.” —Variety

This weekend, we conclude Beloved: A Spotlight Series on Black Female Directors with Kasi Lemmon’s 1997 EVE’S BAYOU — screening Sat, Mar 4 at 12pm* + Sun, Mar 5 at 5:30pm — with a cast that included Jurnee Smollett, Lynn Whitfield, Samuel L. Jackson, Debbi Morgan, Meagan Good and Diahann Carroll. *After Sat’s screening, a discussion with Claudine Taaffe, Senior Lecturer and Associate Chair & Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of African American and Diaspora Studies at @VanderbiltU.

Here’s how #RogerEbert reviewed EVE’S BAYOU in 1997:

“A film of astonishing maturity and confidence — EVE’S BAYOU, one of the very best films of the year, is the debut of its writer and director, Kasi Lemmons…. That Lemmons can make a film this good on the first try is like a rebuke to established filmmakers…. EVES BAYOU resonates in the memory. It called me back for a second and third viewing. If it is not nominated for Academy Awards, then the academy is not paying attention. For the viewer, it is a reminder that sometimes films can venture into the realms of poetry and dreams.” (Nov 7, 1997)
