You See Me Laughin' synopsis

Blending performance and recollections from some of the world's foremost blues performers, this documentary focuses on a rich American musical tradition. Among those profiled are R.L. Burnside, T-Model Ford and other charismatic bluesmen, who explain the origins of their art and the struggles for black performers who came of age in the Jim Crow South. Several of movie's elderly subjects died around the time of its release, making their on-screen presence all the more poignant.
