New World Record is presenting an advance screening of Ani DiFranco's new DVD, "Trust," at 10 p.m. Monday in the Market Arcade Film and Arts Centre, 617 Main St. Immediately following the screening, New World Record, 765 Elmwood Ave., is offering a midnight madness sale of the DVD, which hits the streets Tuesday.
"Trust," filmed by Danny Clinch, offers a verite take on DiFranco's pair of concerts in the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., which took place last May.
It's a thoroughly intriguing, often moving piece that blends grainy, gritty backstage and rehearsal footage with multicamera interpretations of the two live shows. DiFranco emerges, not surprisingly, as a committed artist whose raw, gripping talent as guitarist, singer and songwriter is matched by her zealous commitment to progressive political and social ideals. "Trust" is a treat for fans.
Questions about the screening can be directed to New World Record at 883-DISC.
