Sound & Vision
Sound & Vision brings together siblings of form through a new music documentary series in partnership with DRIP (records). In addition to screening both repertory and contemporary music docs, local bands will perform live before each film, bringing a bit more action to Columbia’s Saturday night.
Featuring a live performance from Mario Mcclean!
Located on the banks of the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of the most creative and defiant music in American history.
At its heart is Rick Hall, who founded FAME Studios. A musician himself, who overcame crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, Hall brought black and white musicians together—during times when the state’s governor wanted "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever"—to create music that would last for generations.
The film brings in legendary artists including Aretha Franklin, Gregg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Jimmy Cliff, Mick Jagger, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Steve Winwood, and others, as well as archival interviews with the late Wilson Pickett and Etta James, all who bear witness to the magnetism and mystery of Muscle Shoals and why it remains a global influence today.
