David Aldrich’s film about Jack White’s guitar-maker makes its New England debut in August.

PRLog - Jul. 17, 2012 - SEATTLE -- Falmouth, MA — July 17, 2012 — "Randy Parsons: American Luthier" will make its New England regional premiere at the 2012 Woods Hole Film Festival on August 2nd at 5:00 p.m.  Director David Aldrich will be in attendance for Q&A during the screenings on Thursday and Saturday nights of the Festival.

David Aldrich's short documentary showcases the journey and talents of Randy Parsons, whose hand-crafted guitars stand out as works of art in an industry otherwise dominated by mass produced, cookie-cutter instruments manufactured by robots and CNC machines.

"American Luthier" recounts Parsons' transformation from aspiring musician to guitar-maker. The guitar had been Parsons' identity since he was a child, but after studying classical and jazz guitar in college, he realized that he would never make a living as a musician.  So he gave it up -- and then one day he had a vision of how the guitar would come back into his life. Now he's creating instruments that are sought after by musicians such as Jack White and Jimmy Page. "This is a film is about someone who gave up their passion for playing guitars and discovered that they had a passion for making guitars. I believe audiences will be inspired by Parsons' story, and his commitment to preserving the art of making guitars." says Aldrich.

The Woods Hole Film Festival is an eight day showcase of independent film, held annually from the last Saturday of July through the first Saturday of August, and is the oldest independent film festival on Cape Cod and the Islands. “American Luthier” will be screening with other short films at the Redfield Auditorium located at 57 Water Street, Woods Hole, MA.
