Brigade Visual Support
Somewhere in Texas, Ace parks his wheelchair and serenades gas station passersby with country songs. This short documentary by Brigade Visual Support is a charming snapshot of what continues to make an elderly musician find love in his work, despite the world's ambivalence. "People walk by and it's like you're not even there. I mean, why not acknowledge somebody?" he says. "What the heck, I'm content. As long as I do what I do."
