Take Me to the River

The award-winning music documentary, Take Me to the River brings multiple generations of 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. Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead calls the movie "Simply Fantastic!"

The film is about the memory and lineage of this unique place of origin, Memphis, and how it has inspired and influenced the world's popular music of today. The film is not only about music, the musicians and the unique place of origin, but about inviting the viewer into the process of making and creating a dynamic collaboration. In Take Me To The River, the camera disappears and performances are natural and unique. Shot with as many as eight cameras at a time, no other music documentary has ever been made like it before.

Take Me to the River won the 24 Beats Per Second Audience Award at the 2014 South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) and also screened at the 2014 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to critical acclaim
