Paul Butterfield learned the blues from the original masters on Chicago’s South Side. His interracial band added a rock-hard edge to the blues and played a key role in introducing the genre to the white rock audience of the mid-1960s. The only blues artist to perform at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and the Woodstock Festival in 1969, Butterfield would continue to redefine the blues while standing for racial equality until his death at age 44 in 1987. Butterfield is one of a handful of musicians inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Blues Halls of Fame, alongside other legendary artists including B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday, and Eric Clapton. Through his music and words, along with firsthand accounts from his family, his bandmates, and those closest to him, Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest blues harmonica player of all time.

“The camera loves Cassandro, the title character of Marie Losier’s intimate and playful documentary portrait of the lucha libre wrestling champion, and he loves it back — not least because it lets him give voice to his real-life melodrama of struggle and success….Filming in the first person, she revels in Cassandro’s offstage charisma and in his acrobatic artistry while also revealing the authentic violence of the sport’s blatant artifice.”
