Best of the Fest: The Groove Is Not Trivial (with Double Talk)

Directed by Tommie Dell Smith

Winner, SDFF 2017 Critic’s Award, Feature Documentary

Master fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s personal journey in search of self-expression is a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There, he finds a universal pulse — a groove, a through-line from the past that sparks hopeful possibilities for the future. The irrepressible Fraser proves that the groove in traditional music transcends toe-tapping fun — it can be a source of personal and political liberation.
