Series - Music in Motion


Join us for a one-night-only double-feature of two inspiring documentary snapshots of one of America’s most community-minded music cities: Athens, GA.

7pm | Athens, GA - Inside/Out

(Tony Gayton, US, 1987, 82 min, in English)

Led by the success of the B-52s and R.E.M., Athens enjoyed one of the country’s most happening music scenes by the mid ’80s. Following several different bands of different genres, Inside/Out encapsulates ’80s Athens as a pseudo-utopian artistic community where bands collaborated rather than competing. The film features interviews with and performances by contemporaries of the production: R.E.M., the B-52s, Pylon, Bar-B-Q Killers, Time Toy, Flat Duo Jets, Love Tractor, Squalls, and more.

9pm | Red Turns Into Blue: Athens, Inside-Out 2

(Tony Brazier & Bill Cody, US, 2021, in English)

In 1987, Bill Cody and Tony Gayton filmed the seminal music doc Athens, GA – Inside/Out. Thirty years later, Bill returns on a new journey that uncovers a Southern city that is leading the way in progressive politics and the beginnings of true racial equity. This followup to Inside/Out again features members of R.E.M., the B-52’s and Pylon, but is now bolstered by a new generation of artists and activists, including Mariah Parker (aka Linqua Franqa), Kishi Bashi, and Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers. Follow along the journey through the social changes that have come to the forefront of our American dialogue.
