5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying for the Music Alone
Though you'd be underestimating the quality of the documentary, as well as creativity if not originality of this musical cinematic presentation (not the first time broadly similar projects, if rare, have been produced). And for most, this DVD -- I purchased the HD streaming version, as inexplicably no blu-ray is available, despite it's being the format this project...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying for the Music Alone, August 19, 2014

Though you'd be underestimating the quality of the documentary, as well as creativity if not originality of this musical cinematic presentation (not the first time broadly similar projects, if rare, have been produced). And for most, this DVD -- I purchased the HD streaming version, as inexplicably no blu-ray is available, despite it's being the format this project deserves -- will be the only opportunity to view the film or listen to one of the best musical compositions from Frisell in some time. Should attract and appeal to more sophisticated cineasts and audiophiles, especially fans of Morrison's previous media projects, Bill Frisell and/or contemporary jazz.

To date, no separate soundtrack is available, nor is one apparently planned.

Stellar music! Powerful images! I highly recommend this extraordinary work. My mother at age 7 lived through this great calamity. She was evacuated by steamboat from Greenville to Vicksburg. When she saw the footage today at age 93 showing evacuees on the dock in Vicksburg, she cried.

Breathtaking and sad, eloquently presented. Beautifully weaves vintage video with vintage photographs. No speech, title pages and music only: very effective.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible! Calling this a documentary is misleading. It's an art film., June 29, 2014

Horrible! Calling this a documentary is misleading. It's an art film at best. Deteriorated found film images supported by music and no commentary might be ok for a YouTube video, but not for a 79 minute film. I was expecting something that presented the facts with a narrative.
