CHICK STRAND: WISH YOU WERE HERE
Dir. Chick Strand, USA, 1966-1986, 120 min., NR, 16mm, at Third Man Records
Thu, Jul 17 at 7:00 pm at Third Man Records
Following Light and Sound’s recent tributes to Bruce Baillie and Canyon Cinema, the obvious next stop is to highlight the sublime work of Chick Strand, Baillie's co-conspirator in the formation of Canyon. Strand's films infuse avant-garde techniques into the documentary form, often reshaping the tendencies of traditional ethnographic cinema and challenging the way First World documentaries approach their exoticised subjects. This career-spanning program sheds light on three decades of rarely-screened work, celebrating her monumental contribution to the American underground.

"Easily the best rock album so far this year”–LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Highly-charged, wonderfully weird and typically eclectic treasure chest of tunes that rank with his best.”—USA TODAY
“He is just that much better than everybody else.”—LA WEEKLY
“Our six-string savior not only makes his guitar do things that will have you forgetting that Page and Plant are never to take to a stage together again; he is also keen to remind us in just whose hands now rests that Hammer of the Gods.”—FILTER
In the wake of overwhelmingly positive reviews, must-see TV appearances and monumental performances everywhere from Governors Ball to Bonnaroo, Jack White has now seen his sophomore album Lazaretto debut at #1 on the U.S. album chart.
Lazaretto is Jack’s second #1 debut in as many albums, its 137,732 first week total surpassing that of 2012’s Blunderbuss.
Additionally, the Lazaretto vinyl ULTRA LP has sold over 40,000 copies— the highest first-week vinyl sales since Soundscan began tracking sales data in 1991.
Lazaretto also debuted at #1 in Canada and Denmark.
Finally, Jack White’s world tour in support of Lazaretto continues to garner arguably the most enthusiastic rave reviews of Jack’s—or anyone’s—career, so rather than living out your days in regret, pick up tickets for a date in your town before they're gone: Tour Dates
