Got turned onto this the other day. It’s a short film inspired by and featuring music from Levon Helm‘s 2007 album, Dirt Farmer. The music is uniformly excellent — big surprise there — but the film itself is a poignant snapshot of life in one desperate corner of rural America. In that sense, I’d say it’s kin to Ray McKinnon’s 2001 short, The Accountant. Check that one out if you haven’t already done so. And if you don’t already have Dirt Farmer, whatcha waiting for?!?! It’s the sound of real, salt of the earth country music digging in its heels and not backing down. God bless Levon Helm.
