Description
Live Acoustic Guitar w/Silent Film

Grammy-Nominated Guitarist, Alex de Grassi  will accompany the critically acclaimed silent film A Story of Floating Weeds (1934) by Yasujiro Ozu.  
A Story of Floating Weeds, an 84-minute, classic, black-and-white film, was among director Ozu’s most successful and a major influence on contemporary directors such as Martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders and Jim Jarmusch. The film enlightens the favored Japanese metaphor, "Floating Weeds, drifting down the leisurely river of our lives", and tells the story of a group of traveling actors drifting aimlessly, carried by currents beyond their control. 
De Grassi, born in Yokosuka, Japan but raised in San Francisco, taught himself to play the guitar, but has studied with noted instructor Bill Thrasher. His first recording was Turning: Turning Back in 1978. He has played at notable venues, including the Montreux Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Belfast International Festival, Telluride and Wolftrap.  For more information on de Grassi, visit: www.degrassi.com
