TAV FALCO : MAKE ME KNOW YOU’RE MINE
Tav Falco is a self-propelled man of constant motion. A musician, writer and filmmaker, the Arkansas native started his life of art and discovery as the assistant to acclaimed photographer William Eggleston and then went on to found transgressive rock and roll bands with the likes of Alex Chilton. For over 30 years, Falco has toured the world as a free-wheelin' entertainer and art provocateur who, at the age of 72, shows no signs of letting up. In the short documentary "Tav Falco: Make Me Know You're Mine," filmmakers JP Olsen and Kristen Nutile follow Falco as he kicks off his 2015 North American tour, supported by punk rock icon Mike Watt on bass and Iggy Pop's drummer, Toby Dammit.
