KEXP recently spoke with SIFF’s Beth Barrett and Clare Canzoneri (former Office of Film + Music intern!) about 2010 Seattle International Film Festival’s lineup of music films and live performances that are part of their Face The Music series. Started in 2005, this year’s series will feature the deep histories on Brazilian music; the gospel and reggae music cultures; a loving ode to Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields; an examination of David Byrne’s and Brian Eno’s creative partnership and live energy; and a pair of identical twin lesbian yodelers from New Zealand. Canzoneri, programming coordinator who focused specifically on curating Face The Music says of this year’s selections, “As a whole, the eight films in Face the Music this year are both an insight into the private lives and public personas of iconic musicians, and a broad celebration of the joys of music, as cheesy as that may sound – from yodeling twins to the bond between Stephin Merritt and Claudia Gonson to the joy that hits like “Rivers of Babylon” still bring to its creators and fans almost 40 years after its conception.” Read the full interview at the above link.
