The Memphis Chapter invites you and a guest to an advance screening of Take Me to the River.

Take Me to the River is a feature film celebrating 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.

The film follows these artists through the creative process of recording a historic new album, re-imagining the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration of Memphis in its heyday. The film features Terrence Howard, William Bell, Snoop Dogg, 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.

There will be a pre-screening reception at 6 p.m. with the film screening at 7 p.m. Following the screening will be an exclusive Q&A session moderated by film critic John Beifuss (The Commercial Appeal), featuring the film’s director/producer Martin Shore, singer/songwriter William Bell, Academy Award winner Frayser Boy, producer Boo Mitchell, rapper Al Kapone, producer Al Bell and producer/musician Cody Dickinson.
