Jefferson Root in person!
2003, Jefferson Root , USA, 97 min.
With Michael Loeffelholz, Katherine Whitney, Steven W. Bailey

Critically acclaimed and a box-office sellout at its world premiere here last September, Jefferson Root’s first film tells of a group of guys obsessed with making mix tapes for their girlfriends. As the story unfolds, the tape takes on many forms, from romantic to psychotic, and, even though the girls may know what’s up, sometimes a really great tape is hard to resist. A bittersweet comedy about love, and music, and no love, and music, MIX TAPE wears its analog heart on its sleeve -- a valentine to a vanishing art form. Shot entirely on location in the neighborhoods of Chicago, the film packs its soundtrack with music from The American Analog Set, Bossa Nova 2600, The Mountain Goats, The Reputation, Sebadoh, and more. DV-CAM video. (JR)
