Todd Haynes Will Direct My Morning Jacket
Director Todd Haynes ( Velvet Goldmine, Mildred Pierce ) first worked with My Morning Jacket front man Jim James on the film I’m Not There. At month’s end the two will collaborate once again when Haynes directs a live stream of the band’s concert set to take place at Louisville’s Palace Theater. This will coincide with the release of the group’s new studio album Circuital. The event is part of American Express’ “Unstaged” series which has seen Terry Gilliam paired with Arcade Fire, John Legend and the Roots with Spike Lee and Duran Duran with David Lynch. The concert will stream at MMJ’s VEVO page on YouTube starting at 9:00pm EST on Tuesday, May 31.
