To say that finding certain obscure documentaries can be difficult is quite an understatement. Fortunately, finding documentary films about American folk or roots culture just got much easier, courtesy of the good people at Folkstreams.net. On this website, visitors can view dozens of very compelling documentaries about such persons as John E. “Frail” Joines, a master tale teller from Wilkes County, North Carolina and singer-faith healer Fannie Bell Chapman. Visitors looking for specific films can search the entire website for such viewing material, along with searching program transcripts, images, and essays. One rather intriguing film that should not be missed is “Hundred and Two Mature”, which provides a portrait of retired businessman Harry Lieberman. The site also contains an RSS feed and a worthwhile blog which allows visitors to leave audio feedback.
