Speed Racer: Welcome to the World of Vic Chesnutt is a half-hour documentary film. It introduces the audience to the then twenty-seven year old singer/songwriter from Athens, Georgia. The recording of Vicís second album is used as a vehicle to enter Chesnuttís all-impressionistic world. Vic's a uniquely talented Southern lyricist whose songwriting is paralleled by few. Through song and interview, he speaks to the audience in his own unique southern tongue. In the end this film captures an incredible musician in the early days of an extraordinary career.

DVD with 60 minutes of extra footage is due out soon. Please check back for updates.
