We are proud and excited to announce that Erik Pearson’s original tune “Fork and File” from the latest Crooked Jades CD “World’s on Fire” is part of the soundtrack for the amazing new Sean Penn film “Into the Wild” .
Penn’s fourth filmmaking effort, “Into the Wild,” is his most accomplished yet, a sign that for all the accolades labeling him the finest actor of his generation, directing could be his real calling.
Adapted by Penn from Jon Krakauer’s best-seller, “Into the Wild” combines grand American vistas with the heartbreaking real-life story of a fierce young idealist whose two-year trek of abstinent adventure ended in tragedy in Alaska.
Christopher McCandless was a rebellious spirit who came from a fairly privileged background yet was drawn to the ascetic tenets set forth by such writers as Leo Tolstoy, Jack London and Henry David Thoreau. He set off on his quest with an aim to repudiate material society and live on his own terms.
