We are thrilled to announce the world premiere of our short doc on Leon Redbone, Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone, will be on September 30, 2018 at The Raindance Film Festival in London UK.
In 2009, we began filming what would turn out to be the last of Leon’s concerts ever caught on camera. Set against those performances, Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone looks back at Leon’s “discovery” by Bob Dylan at the Mariposa Folk Festival in 1972, and at the mystery surrounding this musical cult figure. The film features interviews with John Prine, John Hammond, David Wilcox, Owen McBride and more.
