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.

IN THE BONES | NashFilm Podcast Series | DOCUMENTARY FEATURES
In the midst of deep ideological divisions in our country, it is easy to forget how intrinsically connected we all are. Connections shaped by systemic structures, often patriarchal and racist in nature, that were developed hundreds of years ago. IN THE BONES takes the viewer to Mississippi, the state where women have the fewest rights and protections, and draws connections between regional policies, particularly around equal pay and abortion, that have the potential to affect women and children across the nation. These connections are unearthed through collaging together intimate moments in the unfolding lives of a cast of characters in three distinct regions of the state; The Gulf Coast, the rural Delta and the State Capitol. #inthebones #podcast #interview #womenempowerment #documentary #storicmedia  #nashvillefilmfest #filmmaking   Showing: Sun, Oct 2nd, 1:00 PM @ Tennessee Performing Arts Center - Johnson Theater Runtime:93 minutes Director: Kelly Duane de la Vega, Zandashé Brown, Jessica Anthony Producer:Jessica Anthony, Selina Lewis Davidson, Kelly Duane de la Vega Executive Producer:Anne Devereux Mills, Maureen Pelton, Myrna Coley-Lee, Cherry Graziosi Cinematographer: Clare Major, Mario Furloni Editor:Lila Place Composer: Tony Morales Sound Design:Mike Morasky Music:Mike Morasky This video is brought to you by Storic Media, and is part of the NashFilm Podcast Series.

CAROL & JOHNNY | NashFilm Podcast Series | DOCUMENTARY FEATURES
In the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Johnny and Carol Williams robbed 56 banks together across the American west. At the time, it was the longest consecutive string of unsolved bank robberies in FBI history. When they were finally caught in 1994, Carol got 20 years and Johnny got life. They remained married even after Carol was released and Johnny was still in prison. But in 2021, Johnny got out. Johnny lives in a halfway house in Seattle. Carol cares for a dying aunt in Dallas. She left Texas once before— forty-one years ago, for Johnny.Now she must decide whether she will leave again. But as they remember their shared past, their memories diverge. Carol resolves to create a new future independent of the husband she once thought she knew. This is a story about how some people change and some people don’t. A story about love and, at times, the absence of it. #carolandjohnny #interview #filmmaking #fbi  #storicmedia   #nashvillefilmfest #podcasts   Showing: Friday Sep 30th, 3:30 PM @ Tennessee Performing Arts Center - Johnson Theater Runtime: 90 minutes  Director: Colin Barnicle Producer: Barnicle Brothers with Words and Pictures Executive Producer: Nick Barnicle, Colin Barnicle, Connor Schell, Libby Geist, Aaron Cohen Cast: Johnny Williams, Carolyn Williams, Don Glasser Cinematographer: Colin Barnicle Editor: Colin Barnicle Composer: Graham Reynolds Sound Design: Justin Joseph Hall Music: Allison Wood   This video is brought to you by Storic Media, and is part of the NashFilm Podcast Series.

BUTTERFLY IN THE SKY | NashFilm Podcast Series | DOCUMENTARY FEATURES
Butterfly In The Sky tells the story of the beloved PBS children’s series "Reading Rainbow," its iconic host LeVar Burton, and the challenges its creators faced in cultivating a love of reading through television. Two seconds into the bubbling synth sounds of its theme song will have a child of the 1980s or ‘90s exclaiming “Reading Rainbow!” Such is the beloved nature of the classic children’s literary television show that introduced millions of kids to the wonder of books. Not only did the series insist on having kids speak to kids about their favorite stories,Reading Rainbow introduced the world to one of the most adored television hosts of all time, LeVar Burton. Thanks to his direct, non-patronizing and, most importantly, kind delivery, Burton became a conduit to learning for children of every background - delving behind the pages to the people, places, and things each new story explored. #documentary #storicmedia  #butterflyinthesky #nashvillefilmfest #podcasts #interview #filmmaking #levarburton #pbs #nashfilm  Showing: Friday, Sep 30th, 6:30 PM @ Tennessee Performing Arts Center - Johnson Theater Runtime: 87 minutes Director: Bradford Thomason, Brett Whitcomb Producer: Bryan Storkel Executive Producer: Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Leonardis, Bryn Mooser, Justin Lacob, Kathryn Everett, Andy Hsieh, Tony Hsieh, Raymond Esposito, John B Pounders, Dava Whisenant Cast: LeVar Burton Cinematographer: Tony Hardmon, Brett Whitcomb Editor: Bradford Thomason Animator: Ali Clark Creative Composer: The Octopus Project Sound Design: Lawrence Everson This video is brought to you by Storic Media, and is part of the NashFilm Podcast Series.
