  Jenny Scheinman "Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait"  
(Arts)

Captivating visuals from small towns in the 1930s and '40s are set to an original live score created by composer, singer, and violinist Jenny Scheinman. Depression-era filmmaker H. Lee Waters documented more than 118 small towns in the southeastern United States between 1936 and 1942. He filmed regular people going about their lives--mill workers streaming out of factories, a mother and daughter dancing on a dirt road, an old man reading a wartime headline. Scheinman's score of folk songs and fiddle music accompany this footage in a new film by director Finn Taylor. These iconic images set to Scheinman's music speak deeply to any community today, as they did to the towns portrayed at the time.
