Arthur Russell Documentary Screening

posted by on April 29 at 10:30 AM

Tomorrow night in Portland, their will be a very special screening of Matt Wolf’s new amazing documentary on Arthur Russell, Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell as part of this week’s PDX Film Fest. In this documentary, Wolf highlights through interviews and exclusive footage the life, legacy, and struggles of this legendary avant-garde cellist and disco producer. Arthur Russell can be credited with many amazing and groundbreaking releases including Loose Joints’ “Is It All Over My Face”, Dinosaur L’s “Go Bang”, and the avant-garde masterpiece World of Echo. However, as the documentary suggests, Arthur wasn’t tied to any one particular type of music genre, “Arthur was tied to Arthur”, and that statement is really reflective in this powerful documentary about one of the most unique and influential musicians we’ve seen in some time.

Arthur Russell rules so hard. Why isn't this playing in Seattle? At least SIFF? Also, that Hercules and Love Affair record bites his shit so hard.
