Hear and see Olas: The Film

By SAM PFEIFLE  |  December 12, 2012

The entirety of it is more experience than film. There isn't so much a narrative as an impression, emphasized by Scott Sutherland's many stoic shots: white skirts drying on the line against a crystal blue sky; Kovacevic's feet on the organ's pedals; Dylan Blanchard edging onto Blackstrap Road with his bike.

Like so much of the flamenco music Olas plays, this is a film more for, and of, the body than the mind, though it gives you plenty to think about.

    Lately, it’s been open season on “Wagon Wheel,” which has become the acoustic musician’s “Freebird,” one of the very few songs that people actually know well enough to find it funny to request.
    "(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”
