Andru Bemis: Nobody to Keep Me Down
"This is a short documentary I made for school. In early November of 2014 I went to South Haven, Michigan to profile Andru Bemis. He has been a musician for most of his life, releasing several folk albums and touring the US and Mexico. But Andru has also been running a music and arts community center called Foundry Hall for the last seven years in his hometown. The building that Foundry Hall has occupied during that time had been donated for it's use while the owner determined whether to keep or sell the building. I went to Michigan to learn more about Andru and Foundry Hall."
