Jamland is more than a concert in the woods. It’s a state of mind. This documentary explores a grassroots music festival and includes poignant human interest stories. It’s a film about music, life, and love, and the way music can take us out of our day to day problems and make us feel better.
Et Tu, Dude?
(Travis Welowszky / Canada / 50m)
Set against the backdrop of the fading, post-industrial London, Ontario, an uncelebrated underclass of Do-It-Yourself musicians stare down a bleak, marginalized future while searching for meaning in their community. Revelations and catharsis for their powerful histories are only revealed in an underground venue circuit of dimly lit basements, sleazy apartments, and empty art galleries where they perform and continue to go virtually unnoticed by a placid, indifferent city. Et Tu, Dude? serves as an intimate and captivating documentation of small-town Canadian musicians screaming unheard into the void.
The Hamilton Film Festival screened the short version of Et Tu, Dude in 2015.
