And Miles To Go Before I Sleep | On Tour With The Grateful Dead, Summer 1993

Twenty-six years ago yesterday, The Grateful Dead took the stage at Buckeye Lake Music Center in Hebron, OH. Northern Lights' founding partner Philip Bruell, 20 at the time, and Relix publisher Peter Shapiro, 21, were both there, spending a month documenting the swelling Dead scene.
The Buckeye Lake show opens "And Miles To Go Before I Sleep: On Tour with the Grateful Dead Summer 1993," which was edited on a Video Toaster in the spare bedroom of Phil and NL co-founder David Gioiella’s apartment at Northwestern University. The full film is now available on YouTube, take a look!

On Friday, May 31, in Milan, Italy the AIR3 Associazione Italiana Registi (Italian Directors Guild), A.D. Basket Femminile Milano (Milan Women's Basketball), Fondazione Cariplo and the Municipality of Milano hosted a special screening of “Chi-Town” at BASE Milano for participants in Milan's youth basketball leagues. Special thanks to Carlo Arturo Sigon and Christine Wexler for organizing the event. The feature doc was edited by Northern Lights' Chris Carson and executive-produced by NL partners Mark Littman and David Gioiella.

"Chi-Town" follows Keifer Sykes on his meteoric rise from Marshall High School on Chicago's West Side to his improbable shot at the NBA. This exhilarating multi-year journey of the explosive point guard's ascent is punctuated by personal loss, debilitating injury, and tragic violence. The film premiered at SXSW and is now available on Amazon Prime and iTunes.

The event featured a Skype interview Kiefer, who currently plays for the Italian team S.S.Felice Scandone Avellino 1948 . See more photos here: AIR3 Associazione Italiana Registi

We're saddened to hear that Sheldon Levy has passed. We worked with Sheldon on several projects which, given the nature of our business, necessitated working many late nights and several weekends. Sheldon was always there, and his sense of humor and wry perspective made even the longest night palatable.
We will miss you, Sheldon.

For much of that time he's been playing with the inimitable Mickey Leigh, who's about to release an incredible new album. Here's a video for the first single, "If I Had a Hammer." Pat's the one doing the soft shoe with the girls in the park.
