Take Me to the River
Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
Take Me to the River celebrates the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis in the face of pervasive discrimination and segregation. The film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a historic new album, to re-imagine the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration of Memphis in its heyday. A film that Variety praised as being "..real, geniune, and straight from the heart." Featuring Terrence Howard, William Bell, Snoop Dog, Mavis Staples, Otis Clay, Lil P-Nut, Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Yo Gotti, Bobby Rush, Frayser Boy, The North Mississippi All-Stars and many more. Winner of Audience Award at SXSW 2014, Best Feature Film at Raindance London 2014, and the Audience Awards for Best Documentary at Maine International and New Hampshire International Film Festivals.
Tickets are free to the community. Please reserve at maximum two seats so that as many may attend as possible. If the screening is sold out, we will be happy to put your name on the waiting list. Please advise us ahead of time if you have special seating requirements. Thank you for your support!!
