The Film

A Love Song

Max Walker-Silverman | US | 81

Faye (Dale Dickey) is a lone traveler biding her time fishing, birding and stargazing at a rural Colorado campground as she awaits the arrival of Lito (Wes Studi), a figure from her past who is navigating his own tentative and nomadic journey across the rugged West. Like the country music that has traditionally channeled the heartbreak and resilience of Americans in search of themselves and others—on the road, in the margins, and off the beaten path—writer-director Max Walker-Silverman weaves a spare, lyrical, and ultimately joyful refrain out of the wondrous and transformative act of being alone.

Performer

Low Roller

Low Roller is Daryl Cozzi, Derek Weaving, Ron Muga, & Veronica Davila - A Country collaboration that captures the carefree essence of classic West-Coast Americana. A mutual love of the Laurel Canyon Scene (The Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers) and the Bakersfield Sound (Merle Haggard, Buck Owens) informs their heartfelt songwriting, intricate vocal harmonies, and radiant guitar melodies. Based in Brooklyn, they perform at various NYC venues such as Brooklyn Bowl, City Winery, The Knitting Factory, Union Pool, and are a resident band at Brooklyn’s premier Honky-Tonk, Skinny Dennis. Through lyrical storytelling and lively ensemble playing, Low Roller is looking to keep the hazy neon light of Cosmic Country music glowing.
