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.
