On Location: Memphis Brings 15 Films to Clayborn Temple

Posted By on Thu, Jun 22, 2017 at 1:35 PM

In this month's Memphis Magazine, I wrote about the rebirth of the Clayborn Temple. As part of the program to breathe new life into the Downtown landmark, the On Location: Memphis Film Festival is sponsoring a 15 week film series.

The series kicked off last Thursday with the acclaimed Fruitvale Station, and most of the works screening in the storied sanctuary share some element of social awareness in their theme. This week's offering is Verge, a music documentary by Lakethon Mason that made its debut at last year's Indie Memphis Film Festival. Verge tells the story of several independent Memphis musicians struggling to get ahead in the modern music industry, including Black Rock Revival, Faith Evans Ruch, Nick Black, and Marco Pave.

The screening is free to the public, and kicks off at 6:00 PM at Clayborn Temple, 294 Hernando Street.
