APPROXIMATELY NELS CLINE is Steven Okazaki's first music documentary, featuring Nels Cline, best known as the lead guitarist of Wilco and one of the most brilliant and adventurous musicians on earth. Produced in collaboration with Fantasy Studios, the film features Nels Cline Singers’ Scott Amendola and Devin Hoff, with special guests Carla Kihlstedt, Ron Miles, Yuka Honda, Ben Goldberg and Matthias Bossi.

“It's not your typical music documentary,” says director Steven Okazaki.  “It's about musicianship and the collaborative hard work of playing great music.”
