The Blues - Feel Like Going Home
Filmfest 2004

“For my own film, which was the first in the series, the idea was to take the viewer on a pilgrimage to Mississippi and then on to Africa with a wonderful young blues musician named Corey Harris. Corey isn’t just a great player, he also knows the history of the blues very well. We filmed him in Mississippi talking to some of the old, legendary figures who were still around and visiting some of the places where the music was made. This section culminates in a meeting with the great Otha Turner, sitting on his porch in Senatobia ...It seemed natural to trace the music back from Mississippi to West Africa, where Corey met and played with extraordinary artists ...” Martin Scorsese
