About the film:
‘Still Bill’ is an intimate portrait of soul legend Bill Withers, best known for his classics “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean On Me,” “Lovely Day,” and “Just the Two of Us.” With his soulful delivery and warm sincerity, Withers has written some of the most beloved songs in our time. And, as film critic Roger Ebert writes, “’Still Bill’ is about a man who topped the charts, walked away from it all in 1985 and is pleased that he did.”
Filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack offer a unique and rare look inside Withers’ world. Through concert footage, journeys to his birthplace, interviews with music legends like Sting and Nona Hendryx, his family and closest friends, ‘Still Bill’ presents the story of an artist who truly understands the heart and soul of a man.
(2009, 78 min.)
This film screening is presented as part of “MUSICALLY SPEAKING,” a series of music-themed movies and documentaries, curated and hosted by DJ Soul Sister. Co-presented with Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ, and the New Orleans African American Museum..
