Series 10: One Warm Line: The Legacy of Stan Rogers (1990)

This biographical documentary of Canadian folk musician Stan Rogers is still considered the definitive portrait of the man and his music. Robert Lang produced and directed.

From Robert Lang: “This film was produced at the transition time from film to linear video. As a result, it was an unusual blend of original 16mm film, Betacam video and stock footage in which we had to find various rare sources of live concert audio from the Philadelphia Folk Festival and use a very early form of digital editing to sync up film and audio material from different sources.”

The 3-camera shoot of the Stan Rogers Tribute Concert (coordinated by Mitch Podolak) features well-known musicians playing the music of Stan Rogers at Winnipeg's West End Cultural Centre, produced by Kensington for the One Warm Line documentary. The concert had some gems of interpretation - especially by Spirit of the West, Connie Kaldor, Stephen Fearing, James Keelaghan - that were never used in the finished film.

Series includes source tapes on Betacam SP, concert demos on DVD, Stan Rogers concert audio ¼ in. open reel audio tape, production stills, graphics for the film’s poster, retail DVDs, and textual records including news clippings about the film, correspondence with film festivals, and promotional materials.
