Journeys of Owsley Brown III

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Owsley Brown III was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. He is a documentary filmmaker whose directorial debut, Night Waltz: The Music of Paul Bowles, about the American writer and composer, Paul Bowles, won the Independent Spirit Award in 2000, the Hamptons International Film Festival 1999 Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature Film, and selection by the Berlin International Film Festival in 2000.

This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Journeys of Owsley Brown III :

The San Francisco-based filmmaker’s non-fiction projects have taken him to exotic places. Brown traveled to a sacred site in Tibet for “The Precious Treasury,” and to Tangier, the home of American expat writer and lesser-known composer Paul Bowles, the subject of “Night Waltz: The Music of Paul Bowles.” Brown’s latest doc, “Serenade for Haiti,” a testament to resilience and the sustaining power of music, was shot following the country’s 2010 earthquake
