Nick Doob, Chris Hegedus, and D.A. Pennebaker

Down From The Mountain (2001), directed by Nick Doob, Chris Hegedus, and D.A. Pennebaker, documents a special performance of music from the film, O Brother,Where Art Thou? (2000). T Bone Burnett and Joel Coen (bottom still) produced the concert at the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville; John Hartford was the emcee. Interviews and some archival footage (Ralph Stanley plays "Clinch Mountain Backstep" from the "Pete Seeger Show," top still) round out the sensitively shot live show. Second still: Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss in an unaccompanied trio. "(Didn't Leave) Nobody But The Baby."
