NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of "This Ain't No Mouse Music!" at 7 p.m. Friday, July 1, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

"This Ain't No Mouse Music!" tells the story of Chris Strachwitz and Arhoolie Records. In the documentary, filmmakers Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling take a hip-shaking stroll from New Orleans to Appalachia, chronicling Strachwitz's journey to plantations and prisons, roadhouses and whorehouses, churches and bayou juke joints, to return with recordings that would revolutionize the sound of popular music, according to thisaintnomousemusic.com.

The film runs one hour, 32 minutes.

This screening is part of the School of Art's monthly Friday Film Series and is sponsored in part by the Nacogdoches Film Festival, William Arscott, Nacogdoches Junior Forum, Karon Gillespie, Mike Mollot, Main Street Nacogdoches, David Kulhavy, John and Kristen Heath, Brad Maule, Galleria Z, Jill Carrington, Jean Stephens and Jim and Mary Neal.
