Movie Director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, Footloose) tell us why he believes Memphis, Tennessee “truly is a magical place.” Brewer draws much of his inspiration from the city’s rich musical past. “Whenever I’m asked to come in on a movie and they’re like, we need you to bring soul … I think I know what it is, it’s what Memphis gives me.”
This is part of our series of two-minute films about the country’s most magical locations. Seen through the eyes of 12 film directors, we hear their personal stories in their favorite landscapes and cities. We celebrate the USA as film’s greatest backdrop and via our film directors we gain unique insights into these extraordinary places.
