Still Bill – A Bill Withers Documentary screening this Thursday

Still Bill is an intimate portrait of soul legend Bill Withers, best known for his classics ‘Ain’t No Sunshine,’ ‘Lean On Me,’ ‘Lovely Day,’ ‘Grandma’s Hands,’ and ‘Just the Two of Us.’ With his soulful delivery and warm, heartfelt sincerity, Withers has written the songs that have – and always will – resonate deeply within the fabric of our times.

Fresh & Noble have announced a series of music documentary screenings in Dublin and Cork. The series aims to showcase some of the new breed of music documentaries that spans genres but is rarely screened. Each screening will be followed by DJs or live bands which will be hand-picked to compliment that evening’s documentary.

Still Bill is the first in the series, it was already screened in The Pavillion, Cork since September 19th. Fresh and Noble have teamed with Choice Cuts to bring the Dublin premiere which will treat guests to a unique experience of soul. This takes place on September 30th at The Sugar Club, Dublin. Start time is at 8pm with the screening at 8.45pm. Entry is €7.50 with support music acts to be announced.

Here are some other documentaries in the pipeline:
Nina Simone: La Légende – Special screening of this intimate portrayal of this icon for the Cork Jazz Festival.
Favela On Blast – The directorial film debut from Diplo, documenting the vibrant and innovative musical subculture that has emerged in Brazil’s impoverished slums
