The new Linda Ronstadt documentary Linda and the Mockingbirds, which documents her journey to Mexico to explore her musical roots, will be distributed by home video company Shout! Factory, according to Variety.
Previously, the film was set to premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, but now Shout! plans to release the documentary in 2020 via various distribution platforms.
Directed and produced by James Keach, the film "narrows in on a road trip undertaken by Ronstadt, Jackson Browne and a group of younger musicians made to the Mexican town of Banámichi in the state of Sonora, the birthplace of Ronstadt’s beloved grandfather."
Regarding the documentary, Shout!’s Jeffrey Peisch said, “the film beautifully blends multiple stories, focusing on Linda Ronstadt’s Mexican-American roots, celebrating the music and culture of Mexico and offering a passionate and personal story about immigration.”
