Musicwood is a modern twist on a classic story; a culture clash of staggering proportions, where age-old land disputes upend our simplistic view of the past. World-famous guitar-makers travel into a primeval rain forest to negotiate with Native American loggers before it’s too late for acoustic guitars. Acoustic musicians (Steve Earle, Kaki King, etc) provide a moving soundtrack. The result is a funny, complex and heartbreaking battle over natural resources, and a profound cultural conflict.
