Valley's own film fest competes with best


Five days, one city, one town, many movies and much music. From Sept. 28 through last Sunday, the Hudson Valley was exploding with the arts and culture. From films and music staged by the Woodstock Film Festival to various concerts, this five-day stretch offered many reasons why so many people love living in the area and why so many other people travel here to be stimulated on a cultural level.

Here are the highlights:

# Kicking off the film festival Wednesday was a concert at the Bearsville theater featuring the drummer and bass player for the 1990s band Living Colour. Joining them was keyboard player Bernie Worrell, the subject of a film festival documentary. The rhythm section sounded like a cross between a NASA spaceship and an octopus playing drums. Worrell looked like a shaman who had just stepped out of Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

I saw the Worrell documentary when it played in San Jose last year... he's definitely a cat who's playing by his own rules. It would be really interesting to see how he would interplay with Doug & Will.
