Jug band movie "Chasin' Gus's Ghost" at Cleveland International Film Festival

by WKSU's MARK URYCKI


Reporter
Mark Urycki
 
One of the documentaries showing at the Cleveland International Film Festival this week was inspired by a WKSU concert. "Chasin' Gus's Ghost" is the story of American Jug Band music. Cleveland Film maker Todd Kwait says he wasn't planning to make such a movie but the effort blossomed into a major project.

Listener Comments:

Great piece, and I can't wait to see the film. I have no idea what "John Sayles" is complaining about. Most of the interviews in the story were from the WKSU concert in 2000 - not from the movie. Promoting the Cleveland International Film Festival with two in-depth reports is hardly "shooting the festival in the foot."

So after I listened to this report, I felt as if I'd already seen the movie. Now I don't have to drive to Cleveland! Thanks for shooting the festival in the foot!
