See the screening calendar below, including a brief description of each program. All Indie Lens Pop-Up events are FREE and open to the public and media.
Basin PBS invites you to kick-off the 2018-2019 Indie Lens Pop-Up Season with an advance screening of RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD.
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World is an electrifying look at the Native American influence in popular music, despite attempts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture. As the film reveals, early pioneers of the blues such as Charlie Patton had Native as well as African American roots, and one of the first and most influential jazz singers, Mildred Bailey, had a voice trained on Native American songs.
There's no charge for the screening, but we'd like to know you are coming. Please RSVP.
