Two Trains Runnin’

USA, Feature Documentary, 2016, 82 min

In the 1930s, two giants of the Delta blues, Skip James and Son House, made records that changed America's popular music forever. Then they disappeared. But in 1964, during the folk-song revolution on college campuses, two separate groups of college-age musicians set out for Mississippi—with recording equipment—to find them. At the same time, hundreds of other college students were heading there as Freedom Riders. Finally, in June 1964, the groups converged, as ugliness and fury of the resistance to black voting—the violence, beatings and murders that white authorities unleashed against it—shocked America. But this convergence turned civil rights into a national cause, and spawned the historic 1964 Civil Rights Act. It also launched a resurrection of some of the greatest American music of all time.
