MUSICWOOD is an adventure-filled journey, a political thriller with music at its heart. It is a journey that follows an unusual band of world-renowned guitar-makers — Chris Martin, Bob Taylor and Dave Berryman of Gibson — to remote, foreboding and primeval Southeast Alaska. These guitar-makers are on a desperate mission: to negotiate with Native Americans and change the way a rare rain forest is logged before it’s too late for acoustic guitars.
MUSICWOOD upends our simplistic view of indigenous peoples and the past, with a story where it’s often impossible to tell the good guys from the bad. MUSICWOOD is a culture clash of staggering proportions, between Native American loggers, white CEO’s, and the most radical environmental group in the world.
The film features exclusive acoustic performances and interviews with guitar players like acoustic virtuoso Kaki King, The Antlers, Yo La Tengo, Steve Earle, Turin Brakes, and Kurt Wagner of Lambchop.
