Acclaimed composer, singer, and violinist Jenny Scheinman invites us into the captivating visual world of Depression-era filmmaker, H. Lee Waters. From 1936-42, Waters documented towns in the South, traveling extensively, filming people going about their lives, and working with local movie theaters to screen his silent shorts.
