Old-growth forests, famous guitar-makers, Native American loggers, and a radical environmental group meet (and sometimes clash) in this modern twist on a classic story: an urgent battle between the white man and Native Americans, where age-old land disputes upend our simplistic view of indigenous peoples and the past. The guitar-makers are on a desperate mission: to negotiate with Native American loggers and change the way a rare rain forest is logged before it’s too late for acoustic guitars. Featuring musical acts including Steve Earle and Yo La Tengo in a story where it’s often impossible to tell the good guys from the bad, Musicwood is a political thriller with a heart of music.
