Q&A with Terry Zwigoff, which will include a preview clip of his upcoming Amazon Series “Budding Prospects”

Zwigoff found his way into filmmaking through a love of traditional music and a desire to document those responsible for keeping those old sounds alive. His first feature, which finds his love for out-of-time eccentrics already established, is a portrait of Howard “Louie Bluie” Armstrong, a self-taught folk artist, peerless story-teller, and member of perhaps the last black string band in America.
