The film ‘Blaze’ is about the unsung songwriting legend Blaze Foley, a relatively obscure country singer who died in 1989. Foley was one of the pioneers of the Texas outlaw country music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Townes van Zandt. The film was directed, co-written and co-produced by Ethan Hawke and premiered at the 2018 Sundance Festival.

This film is curated by Chasing Reels. Chasing Reels is a movie night to celebrate the grand international independent film scene. They curate the best indie flicks everyone should see but are not released in The Netherlands.
