James Reams documentary set for UK Film Festival
James Reams has just shared news that his recent film, James Reams Like a Flowing River a Bluegrass Passage has been selected by an International Film Festival based in the UK.
The Doc’n Roll Festival began in 2013 as the UK’s Music Documentary Film Festival. The fest, available online in 2020, celebrates music subcultures by providing a unique platform to support the wealth of creative, compelling and unforgettable documentaries that celebrate the performers, labels, scenes and stories.
Like A Flowing River : A Bluegrass Passage, tells the story of James Reams who burst onto the bluegrass music scene in 1993. Coming from the hills of Kentucky and ending up in New York City, he touches on the themes of loneliness, homelessness, a life-threatening illness that could possibly end his career, and the loss of the love of his life and musical partner, Tina. One near death experience, a brief but powerful time being homeless, and a career-threatening surgery combined to make James what he is today…an example of what courage, determination, and optimism – mixed with a whole lot of faith – can accomplish.
I just want to thank everyone for the support during the making of the film – James Reams.
