DVD - Musicwood

CLEARANCE PRICED, SAVE $11.95. For hundreds of years guitars have been made the same way, but this could all change. Musicwood is an adventure-filled journey, a political thriller with music at its heart. An unusual band of guitar-makers (Bob Taylor of Taylor guitars, Chris Martin of Martin Guitars and Dave Berryman of Gibson Guitars) travel together into one of the most primeval rainforests on the planet to negotiate with Native American loggers and change the way this forest is logged before it's too late for acoustic guitars. It's a culture clash between the makers, Native Americans who are distrustful of the white man, and Greenpeace all battling over a forest that is the last of its kind on the planet. As the tug-of-war unfolds, acoustic virtuosos Kaki King, Yo La Tengo, The Antlers, and Steve Earle play on the soundtrack, giving a heartbeat to this debate. "This is a moving and eye-opening film, and we can't recommend it enough." - Newport Folk Festival. 80 min.
