Nashville writer Joan Tewkesbury in person for introduction and Q&A
There are a million stories in bicentennial Music City, USA, and Altman and Tewkesbury shuffle between 24 of them, the stars, strivers, losers, oddballs, and hangers-on swarming around Nashville’s country music scene in the lead-up to a nationally televised presidential rally. In pinpointing the link between mass-entertainment and politics, this all-American masterpiece is positively prescient.
