Director Tim Sutton is premiering his film Memphis on January 17, and we now have the trailer for the film, which stars the enigmatic Willis Earl Beal and also features his music. From the Sundance Film Festival description of Memphis:
A strange singer with God-given talent drifts through his adopted city of Memphis with its canopy of ancient oak trees, streets of shattered windows, and aura of burning spirituality. Surrounded by beautiful women, legendary musicians, a stone-cold hustler, a righteous preacher, and a wolf pack of kids, the sweet, yet unstable, performer avoids the recording studio, driven by his own form of self-discovery. His journey quickly drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension.
