About the Film:
Chris Strachwitz, the guiding force behind the legendary Arhoolie Records, is a detective of sounds, an archaeologist of the deep American music. In No Mouse Music!, their vivid portrait of the obsessive sonic sleuth, filmmakers Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling take a hip-shaking stroll from New Orleans to Appalachia and right into very the DNA of rock'n'roll. We come face to face with the creators of indigenous music, playing songs that are endemic to their place and circumstance. Even 50 years later, Arhoolie's records remain alive, unruly and still so sharp that some songs can cut you right down to the soul.
