I saw this film back in February at the Cleveland International Film
Festival.  It was eye opening for many of the witnesses and the festival
gave the film two screening theaters as well as a question and answer
session after it was shown with the director and producer.  

It is a very "smart" and sobering film done by people outside of the
industry.  I think the real value of this film is letting the general
public at large have a deeper understanding of what has happened in our
industry coupled with the awareness of the film makers to take it on the
road themselves.  If they sold this film to one of the major film
companies this work probably wouldn't see the light of day and they said
as much during the Q and A session.  

If you haven't seen it, I'd highly recommend it.

Times are a changin' aren't they???

Aloha,

Bobby Jackson

--->Sadder still is when people make uninformed statements like the
above.
As Mark twain once said "The  reports of my death have been greatly 
exaggerated. "
THE RECORD COMPANIES AND THE RECORDING INDUSTRY ARE NOT  DEAD NOR ARE
THEY 
DYING.  THEY ARE GOING THROUGH A PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT IN  THE MIDST OF
AN 
INFORMATION  AND ENTERTAINMENT REVOLUTION.
 
MUSIC IS MORE POPULAR THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY AND IS ONLY BECOMING
MORE  
UBIQUITOUS. RECORD COMPANIES AND THE RECORDING INDUSTRY ARE REINVENTING

THEMSELVES.
