Director V. Scott Balcerek will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A on September 25.
In 1986, two musicians with literally nothing in common met on the streets of Harlem, as Adam Gussow, a young white Jewish harmonica player, stumbled across an old Mississippi bluesman named Sterling “Mr. Satan” Magee. Mr. Satan was performing on the street; Adam asked him if he could sit in for a spell...and together, they would join forces to blaze a new musical trail.
In 1995, young filmmaker V. Scott Balcerek discovered these two musical soulmates performing together, and immediately set out to tell their tale. A harrowing 23 years later, he's given us a spell-binding, stranger-than-fiction story of friendship, heartbreak, and the transformative power of music.
