Written by General Press Release   

The Great Flood, a film-music collaboration by Bill Morrison and legendary guitarist Bill Frisell, will be screened on Wed., June 7, at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater in Little Rock at noon for Free. It is based on, and inspired by, the catastrophic Mississippi River Flood of 1927 and the ensuing transformation of American society. Frisell's remarkable soundtrack reflects the northern migration of southern rural blacks prompted in part by the flood, which helped spread African American musical styles throughout the nation. The film features every known moving image of the 1927 flood. It is co-sponsored by Arkansas Sounds and the Clinton School of Public Service.
