A HARD ROW TO HOE, 30min., Germany, Documentary
Directed by Lucas Fiederling
Dege Legg, aka Brother Dege is ‘Louisianas best kept secret’. The writer, musician and working man has been living the dream of freedom, traveling the southlands for decades. His music has made it on international television and his hit ‚Too old to die young‘ was handpicked by Quentin Tarantino for the ‚Django Unchained‘ soundtrack. Still, the commercial success never fully happened. To this day he’s running his own label, booking his bands tours around the globe and takes on day-jobs whenever the bank is low. Will he be able to make his unique and deep version of delta blues for the world and keep touring with his band, or will he have to cope for a more normal life to make his ends meet for himself and his family?
