"Two Trains Runnin’ " is a feature-length doc directed by acclaimed filmmaker Samuel D. Pollard, narrated by Common, and featuring the music of Gary Clark Jr. Set primarily in Mississippi against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement’s Freedom Summer, it follows two groups of young men who are searching for pioneering blues musicians who may be lost to history. A phone call to Detroit plays a key role in locating Son House, the expressive singer-guitarist who later in his life would move to the Motor City – and go on to influence a wide variety of rockers.

The film pays tribute to a pioneering generation of musicians while placing their times in broader historical context, offering a crucial vantage from which to view the evolving dynamics of race in America.

2016. 1 hour, 20 minutes. Directed by Samuel D. Pollard. Metro Detroit premiere.

Third Man Records' artist Danny Kroha will be performing a live blues set following the screening.
