YOUR FRIEND MEMPHIS | NashFilm Podcast Series | DOCUMENTARY FEATURES
Memphis is wild at heart. He lives on the edge, pursuing his dreams with grit. But as a young man with cerebral palsy, living without government support, Memphis feels stuck. Saddled with their own baggage, Memphis’ parents waver between supporting his desire for independence and pushing him towards a more pragmatic reality. Seneca, his best friend, struggles to reconcile her own big ambitions with her small town life – and her relationship with Memphis. Shot over five years, debut director David Zucker’s Your Friend, Memphis is an intimate portrait of Memphis’ dogged determination: to bridge the distance between the world’s expectations and his own aspirations, no matter what. #yourfriendmemphis #documentary #nashvillefilmfest #podcasts #interview #cerebralpalsy #austintexas #filmmaker #storicmedia #filmmaking Showing: Tue, Oct 4th, 6:00 PM @ Belcourt Theater Runtime: 93 minutes Director: David Zucker Producer: Ben Edelman, Luke Terrell Executive Producer: Susan Bedusa, Douglas Tirola, Hallee Adelman, Ivy Herman, Ben Schwartz, Matt Burke Cast: Memphis DiAngelis, Edoardo DiAngelis, Christine Blacklock, Seneca Mick Cinematographer: David Zucker Editor: David Zucker, Jody McVeigh-Schultz, Darrin Navarro, ACE Composer: Saul Simon MacWilliams, Billy Libby Sound Design: Jacob Misrach-Bloomfield, MPSE, Greg Francis This video is brought to you by Storic Media, and is part of the NashFilm Podcast Series.
