Still Bill

Still Bill Trailer from B-Side Entertainment on Vimeo.

STILL BILL is an intimate portrait of soul legend Bill Withers, best known for his classics “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean On Me,” “Lovely Day,” “Grandma’s Hands,” and “Just the Two of Us.” With his soulful delivery and warm, heartfelt sincerity, Withers has written the songs that have – and always will – resonate deeply within the fabric of our times.

Still Bill is opening this week at IFC theater for a week’s run. It opens Wednesday at IFC and in addition, it will screen in a special presentation hosted by Brooklyn’s BRIC, at the Pavilion Theater in Park Slope. The extra incentive this week—and it’s a bigger incentive than you may realize—is that Mr. Withers will be here in person on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. He’s a treat to see in person and he’ll be doing Q+A’s with Alex Vlack and his fellow director, Damani Baker. Listening to Bill speak in person is not to be missed.

Information on the Brooklyn screening on the 26th

For the IFC, starting the 27th.

  1. Oh my God, I wish I could be there. (I live in Australia). One of my favourite artists of all time. This is my favourite performance and song of his: http://vodpod.com/watch/1865761-bill-withers-on-vimeo

  2. I caught this in San Francisco and it is EXCELLENT. I highly recommend it anyone that has ever been a fan of any of his music.

  3. I always think of the intro to that Fiona Apple song (maybe it’s a Bill Withers cover, it’s likely but I don’t know for sure) “Use Me”, where she says:

    “You like Bill Withers? You like Bill Withers?”

    *crowd cheers*

    “…Go get Bill Withers.”

    Love that song, too.

  4. I had the privilege of seeing this with a Q+A with the directors afterwards. (Apparently Bill was going to come too but couldn’t make it. I would’ve died.) It was a really intimate portrait of an ordinary guy with a big talent.

  5. Thanks a lot for posting this. Me and my girlfriend saw the movie tonight and we really enjoyed it. It’s very inspiring.

    I view your site everyday, keep up the good work.
