(Bruce McDonald, Canada, 2010, Blu-ray, 90 min)

Seattle Premiere!
Rita Chiarelli in person and performing Saturday at 7pm screening!

Part concert film, part observational essay, Music From the Big House is a story of redemption.  Taking place in Angola State Prison, an ex-slave plantation and the largest maximum-security facility in the U.S., Canadian singer Rita Chiarelli organizes a concert with the prisoners. Starring many men who have life sentences, Chiarelli facilitates the return of blues to its origins.  The inmates are characterized by their performances, not their crimes, their smiles and sways reiterating the power of the blues.

Special Saturday 7pm ticket prices: $15 general, $12 members.
