The Hometowner Documentaries block of shorts screens at the Halloran Centre beginning at 6 PM. Among the 9 films on the bill are "Tom Wuchina Art Of Memphis", which highlights the work and life of an artist whose public pieces you have seen, but may not have known where they came from. Brian Manis' 20-minute "Brewhouse: The Tennessee Brewery Story" fills in the gaps on one of Downtown's most storied and prominent buildings on the eve of its big comeback. "Viola: A Mother's Story Of Juvenile Justice" is the second work in the festival by Joann Self Selvidge, the documentarian whose film The Keepers wowed audiences on opening night. This time, she's partnering with past Indie Memphis winner Sarah Fleming for an 8-minute preview of their upcoming feature documentary about the school-to-prison pipeline and how groups in Memphis are working for reform.
