Busk: The Heart of Street Performance (2013) NOT RATED · 42min · Documentary, Short, Biography · 1 May 2013
BUSK! is a character-driven documentary that explores the joys and pitfalls of performing on the street for tips. With an inquisitive and playful spirit, the story delves deep into the lives and aspirations of a singer, a magician, and a sketch artist who regularly share their art in uptown Charlotte. Many other artists, including those who participated in the Buskapalooza Street Performance Festival, also share their busking experiences and philosophies on art that reaches beyond the walls of a gallery, theatre, or concert hall. "Playful. Serious. Educational. Very much from the heart. Audiences are allowed a real and meaningful glimpse into the lives of the main characters, and each of them is so incredibly honest and revealing, it's impossible not to be moved. In addition to a range of art forms and skill levels, we see how each gets something unique from busking and how it factors into their lives. I really like that the end of the film puts the audience within the circle of buskers in a very participatory way, including overviews of local law that show the frustrating complexity of what is or isn't allowed. Totally enrapturing, fun, and fast-paced. A wonderful journey!" - Ross Wagner, Professor of English & Film Studies - Written by April Denée
