Lucy Massie Phenix's You Got to Move: Stories of Change in the South is about individuals who have dared to change the world for the better and Tennessee s world-renowned Highlander Folk School (now Highlander Research and Education Center), the place that for 85 years has taught them how to achieve this change. Whether it was fighting for Civil Rights, the rights of Labor, or stopping the ravaging of communities by strip mining and toxic waste dumping, these Highlander people (including a young Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr.) have been active in some of the most significant movements in this country. Rich in the language and music of the South, You Got to Move is about people s discovery within themselves of the courage and ability to confront reality and change it. It is a film that champions civil action and makes you want to move!

This is the "pre-hanging" for our 61.5" X 92" (that's approximately 5 feet by 7.5 feet) poster of CHANG. It's an original 1927 poster from the French release. It was our (Milestone's) first acquisition, our first restoration, our first theatrical release, our first VHS release, our first laserdisc release and our first DVD release.
Since there were only three of us, we had to use a tripod and just leave it on as we 3 struggled to hang the poster. Only on editing and when I realized the video might need subtitles did I see the resemblance to a classic short film.
The score to this film was originally written and produced by Bruce Gaston and Fong Naam for our release of CHANG.
In memoriam of Jack Bruce, here is a never-before-seen video by Shirley Clarke. The Project Shirley digitization of the 1/2" tapes by Milestone and the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research has yielded many discoveries. This is an edited version of four 1/2" tapes from the Shirley Clarke collection of the recording sessions for ESCALATOR OVER THE HILL. They were taped in 1971 as Shirley Clarke's present to Carla Bley. They are presented here courtesy of the WCFTR and Carla Bley.
