MEMPHIS YOUNG SOUL / SIMON EMMETT

A film for the Simon Emmett exhibition 'Memphis Young Soul' at the Leica Studio, Mayfair.

Memphis Young Soul captures students of the Stax Music Academy at the original site of Stax Records.

Stax Music Academy is in one of the poorest zipcodes in America. It has given local children the chance to flourish musically and academically, welcoming people from all backgrounds and situations. Its a remarkable story with every student going on to further education, many with full scholarships.

The MYS project highlights others who have influenced or been influenced by the Stax musical heritage.

'The Fire Barber' stars Memphis legend Warren Lewis, whose barber shop was located next to Stax Records. He is famous for cutting hair with fire, working with the Civil Rights Movement and being the first man to shave the head of Isaac Hayes.

Directed by Simon Emmett. Edited by Anthony Shurmer.

We hope to include more of the films here soon.
