Under the guiding hand of Martin Scorsese, The Blues is a series of seven uplifting films by world famous directors who share a passion for the music. The films, by Scorsese, Mike Figgis, Wim Wenders, Clint Eastwood, Charles Burnett, Marc Levin and Richard Pearce, capture the essence of blues music and delve into its global influence - from roots in Africa to its inspirational role in today's music.

Feel Like Going Home (Martin Scorsese): Director Martin Scorsese pays homage to the Delta Blues. Musician Corey Harris travels through Mississippi and on to West Africa, eploring the roots of the music. The film celebrates the early Delta Bluesman through original performances and rare archival footage.

Red, White & Blue (Mike Figgis): Director Mike Figgis joins musicians such as Van morrison, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Tom Jones performing and talking about the British blues boom from the late 1950's onwards. A Thoughtful and musically uplifting analysis of the influence of the blues on British musicians and the re-export of the music to America.

The Soul Of A Man (Wim Wenders): Director Wim Wenders explores the lives of his favourite blues artists - Skip James, Blind Willie Johnson and J.B Lenoir - in a film that is part history and part personal pilgrimage. The film tells the story of these artists' lives in music through a fictional film-within-a-film, rare archival footage and covers of their songs by contempory musicians.

Piano Blues (Clint Eastwood): Director and piano player Clint Eastwood explores his life long passion for piano blues, using a treasure trove of rare historical footage in addition to interviews and performances by living legends.

The Road To Memphis (Richard Pearce and Robert Kenner): Director Richard Pearce traces the musical odessy of blues legend BB King in a film that pays tribute to the city that gave birth to a new style of blues. Pearce's homage to Memphis features original performances by BB King, Bobby Rush, Rosco Gordon and Ike Turner, as well as historical footage of Howlin' Wolf and Rufus Thomas.

Warming By The Devil's Fire (Charles Burnett): Director Charles Burnett presents a tale about a young boy's encounter with his family in Mississippi in the 1950s, and intergenerational tensions between the heavenly strains of gospel and the devillish moans of the blues.

Godfathers And Sons (Marc Levin): Director Marc Levin travels to Chicago with hip-hop legend Chuck D (Public Enemy) and Marshall Chess (son of Leonard Chess and heir to the Chess Records legacy) to explore the heyday of Chicago blues, as they unite to produce an album that brings veteran blues players together with contemporary hip hop musicians. Along with never-before-seen archival footage of Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, are original performances by Koko Taylor, Otis Rush, Magic Slim, Ike Turner and Sam Lay.
