Ian MacKaye Introduces Nina Simone

Those in the DC area who can catch the Maryland Film Festival this week can see a little screened 1992 doc about Nina Simone called Nina Simone: La Légende. The draw: it will be introduced by Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye who will lead a discussion about the film afterwards. The doc was made for French television in and mixes and includes interviews and performances from a 1969 Peter Rodis short doc about Simone.

Film festival opens May 7; Ian’s screening is May 9 at 4 p.m. at Baltimore’s Charles Theatre.
