Producer/Director John C. Jointer will be screening a rough cut of his pilot Indie Soul Journeys. IFP Chicago members are invited to attend the screening and provide feedback to the filmmaker. Feedback on works-in-progress is an important part of the production process.

Indie Soul Journeys is an interactive 30-minute docuseries devoted to the inspirational personal and musical stories of current and former independent soul, R&B, and urban alternative artists who are still following Black American Music traditions in the modern musical era.

Through intimate testimonials, first-hand narratives, and electrifying performances, Indie Soul Journeys answers the people’s call, by bringing to life the incredibly aspirational stories of musician mavericks who dared—despite unsettling fears and troubling trials—to persevere and live out their wildest dreams.
