Brand USA’s second IMAX® and giant-screen documentary, America’s Musical Journey, will have a premiere screening in Washington, D.C. on February 15, 2018 at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Narrated by Academy Award winning actor Morgran Freeman, and featuring visits to a number of U.S. destinations famous for their music, America’s Musical Journey celebrates “the diverse music and creative risk-taking spirit that characterize America.”
Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc serves as the de fact host of the film, as he traces Louis Armstrong’s footsteps through the colorful locales where America’s music was born—cities like New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Nashville, Miami and more—and meet the artists, music makers, storytellers, and innovators who are shaping America’s culture today.
America’s Musical Journey is Brand USA’s second giant-screen production. The first, featuring America’s national parks, premiered in February 2016 and was a popular hit among overseas visitors to the U.S. It is still playing at some venues. Brand USA has already given the go ahead for a third giant-screen film by MacGillivray Freeman Films. It is scheduled to debut in 2020.
Based in Laguna Beach, California, MacGillivrary Freeman Films was founded in the mid-1960s by GregMacGillivray and Jim Freeman. It has produced documentaries, feature films, and IMAX films. In 2010, MacGillivray Freeman Films became the first documentary film producer to ever cross the $1 billion mark in gross box office.
