Part musical documentary, part personal meditation, Someplace Else, is the engaging portrait of soul-blues-funk musician Vance Kelly from the South Side of Chicago, recorded through the director's personal film journal as he transitions from his corporate job, which he quits after realizing its benefits have lost much of their value to him, to what he hopes will be creative fulfillment and a sense of purpose.
Luong's thoughtful ruminations on where he has been and where he is going are interspersed with evocative images of the Windy City and footage of Vance Kelly and his Backstreet Blues Band.
Someplace Else is something else in filmmaking: Weaving the narrative, photographic and lyrical content of the music in an unconventional and rhythmic way, this feature debut transforms the visual experience of a documentary into a fresh, captivating journey of many facets.
Directed by Kai-Duc Luong & Avisheh Mohsenin, USA, 2008, 70 min.
