B-Side has acquired Still Bill a recent best documentary winner and audience favorite at one of B-Side’s festival partners the Urbanworld Film Festival. 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 among many more. Filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack follow Withers and offer a unique and rare look inside the world of this fascinating man who has written some of the most beloved songs in our time. Still Bill will be released via the B-Side’s signature Theatrical-on-Demand program where individuals and organizations can host a screening of any size in any location at any time. The Still Bill website will allow audiences to sign up to host their own screening of the film. The first 50 hosts to sign-up will also receive an exclusive signed Bill Withers Still Bill poster. As long-time Bill Withers fans we were honored that he let us into his life and shared the story of his ascent to Grammy-winning artist with us say filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack. Now seven years later we look forward to working with B-Side to impart that story to other fans who like us wondered what became of the talented man behind so many classic American songs.
