Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell
Arthur Russell was a composer, cellist, singer, Disco producer. Unfortunately he died of AIDS in 1992 leaving behind him a wealth of undiscovered classics, underground hits and a legacy of pure genius production. He was the man behind New York white disco punk funk acts Dinosaur L and Loose Joints. Thankfully Matt Wolf has put together a film documenting as much interesting and relevant information about Arthur as is possible in such a short space of time.
The film is availble to purchase now from the below link and is also showing at Leeds Film Festival.
