Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker, the New York-based husband-and-wife team that went behind the scenes of Clinton’s victorious 1996 presidential campaign for the Academy Award-nominated documentary The War Room, have two new productions. Moon Over Broadway, a documentary about the trials and tribulations of a Broadway stage production starring Carol Burnett, is currently making the festival rounds, with the duo’s next project, Searching For Jimi Hendrix, set for delivery by the end of this year once final editing is finished. Searching, according to Hegedus, whose filmography includes several concert films and other musically related projects in partnership with Pennebaker, consists of ’12 different musicians influenced by Jimi Hendrix, doing a song.’ With the participation of songsters from a variety of musical genres – Laurie Anderson, Roseanne Cash, Chuck D. of Public Enemy and Los Lobos among others – Searching For Jimi Hendrix is slated for a home video and television release, pending broadcast and distribution agreements.
