Today is Loren Connors’ 74th birthday. To celebrate, we are currently streaming a film portrait of the avant-garde blues musician.
Gestures is now playing in the Movie Club through Oct 27th, available for our Patreon subscribers at the $7/month level, and including brand new interviews with filmmaker Vincent Guilbert and musician Loren Connors, the film’s subject and ‘star’, alongside a new appreciation of Connors’ body of work, written by MLP.
If you’re already a Movie Club member, please pass this post on to someone who isn’t yet but won’t want to miss the rare opportunity to see Gestures, which is available to stream for the very first time!
There will also be a screening of Gestures in the UK this evening, where the film will be paired with Captured in the Air (2023), another documentary portrait of Connors made up of a collection of still photographs by collaborator Aki Onda. Tickets & more info can be found here.
