The great Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins is captured brilliantly in this deeply moving film. Blank reveals Lightnin's inspiration, and features a generous helping of classic blues, including the songs, Mr. Charlie and Your Rollin' Mill is Burnin' Down. Includes performances at an outdoor barbeque, a black rodeo, and a visit to his boyhood town of Centerville, Texas. This powerful portrait is among Blank's special masterworks.
