One of the films screening next week at the BlackStar Film Festival is Steve Zegans’ Res Documentary.  You might even call it a work in progress, as what’s being screened is only 15 minutes.  According to the description

Following Res from 2010 to present the “Res Documentary” gives us a performance filled, up close look at the highs and lows of being an independent recording artist after being signed to a major label.

There’s of course a snippet of an interview with Talib Kweli and I found what he said about Res very moving: “People don’t understand how dope Res is. . .And I was such a fan of Res. . . I just wanted more people to be fans.”  Thus was born Idle Warship. Now, that’s a friend and someone who believes in you!

The Res Documentary preview is on Saturday, August 4 at 7PM, and there will be a Q&A with the director immediately following.

    Did they interview Santigold for the documentary?

       Not sure.  The entire runtime is 14 minutes, so it may just be a few sections of a larger piece.
