"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“In American Epic we can examine how important the fact is that when phonograph records were invented, for the first time ever, women, minorities, poor rural men and even children were given the opportunity to say whatever they wanted in song, for the whole world to hear, shockingly without much censorship.” (Jack White, Executive Producer)

“This is America’s greatest untold story.” (Robert Redford, Executive Producer)

“These musicians we profile are the real American heroes. They set out from the darkness with nothing but a guitar on their backs, and put out their thumbs and conquered the world.” (T. Bone Burnett, Executive Producer)

"American Epic is the story of one of the great moments in American history –when the voices of working people, minorities, and rural people throughout the country were first heard.” (Bernard MacMahon, Director)

“We traveled the length of America in our quest to discover the stories of America’s earliest recorded musicians.” (Allison McGourty, Producer)

About the Author

Bernard McMahon is cofounder of Lo-Max Films as well as the director and writer of the American Epic film series and the performance feature The American Epic Sessions.
