MIDWEST PREMIERE: "Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton" dir. Jeff Broadway IN COMPETITION The film draws on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map to delve deeper into the label's enigmatic artists, history, culture and global following. But more largely, “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton” explores the spirit of independence and a dedication to core artistic principles, which have guided Peanut Butter Wolf and the entire Stones Throw collective for nearly two decades in a cutthroat industry that has experienced much tumult and change. Cast members include Stones Throw staples such as Peanut Butter Wolf, Madlib, MF DOOM, Mayer Hawthorne and Dam-Funk, as well as other artists such as Kanye West, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Common, Earl Sweatshirt, Ariel Pink, Geoff Barrow, Flying Lotus and A-Trak. (Synopsis provided by filmmaker.) Dir. Jeff Broadway, 2013, USA, 90 min., HD
