'Big Easy Express' Documentary Heading To Toronto Hot Docs Festival

Check out the above trailer for Big Easy Express, which premiered at SXSW and won the Headliner Audience Award. The documentary, directed by Emmett Malloy, captures a musical journey. Harkening back to the days of jubilant railroad revivals, three bands set out in April 2011 to tour America by vintage train. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Mumford & Sons climbed aboard amid the rail yards of Oakland and set out for New Orleans on a “tour of dreams.” Big Easy Express documents the bands’ railway adventures; the high canyons, joyous crowds, blasted skies, late-night laughter, endless music…and a train that was bound for glory.

Big Easy Express will next play at the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto on April 28 and 29. Tickets are available for purchase here: http://bit.ly/GXPxfc.
