Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Back in August 2007 we directed your attention to a doc-in-progress about Robert Crawford -- or, right, Bob as he's known in East Dallas and 'round downtown. (Schutze knows him as "Bob with the keyboard.") Looks like the movie about the New Hampshire native and "spiritual savant" is finally finished: Though we've yet to get a list of movies playing in the USA Film Festival, which kicks off at the end of April at the Angelika, Christina Hughes Babb notes that it's been accepted into the fest. Here, then, the most recent trailer.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
