Short Film Favorite: “We Didn’t Get Famous.”
This one is well worth the 35 minutes of your time it will take to watch it.
“We Didn’t Get Famous” is a history of the southeastern American rock scene from 1978 to 1990. It features some of the unsung heroes of a rich scene that’s produced such legends as R.E.M. and cult favorites like Big Star and The dB’s.
Best of all, if you watch it, you’ll be supporting an independent voice in cinema. The film is director Camilla Ann Aikin’s master thesis on Southern Studies at the University of Mississippi.
