“A film of quiet intensity and poetic imagery.” —Hollywood Reporter

Mysticism envelops a talented singer who wanders through the city of Memphis, making music as he encounters a preacher, a hustler, a beautiful woman, and a pack of kids. Avoiding the recording studio, he studies the difference between a life of happiness and one of destruction, all set to a blues soundtrack. Willis Earl Beal plays the moody musician in a film described as an “eccentric, dreamlike pic” (Variety). 2013, DCP, 79 minutes.

In person: Producer John Baker.
