ABOUT TWO TRAINS RUNNiN'
On the eve of the civil rights movement, two separate groups of bright-eyed, white college kids set off to Mississippi, the segregated South, in hopes of finding their blues idols Son House and Skip James. Their intersecting stories run parallel to one about the harsh racist realities of 1960’s America. Two Trains Runnin’ is a must-see film about hot-button issues - police brutality, racism, civil rights, and the legacy of black country music - that are as urgent today as they were in 1964. ~ Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
