MEMPHIS YOUNG SOUL / SIMON EMMETT


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

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

The 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 single student going on to further education and many with full scholarships.

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

'The Flame Barber' features Memphis legend Warren Lewis, whose barber shop was located right next to Stax Records. Warren is famous for cutting hair with fire, his work for the Civil Rights Movement and for being the first man to shave Isaac Hayes’ head, amongst many other things.

Directed by Simon Emmett. Edited by Anthony Shurmer.

Clips from the film will be included here at a later date.

Memphis Young Soul is at Leica Studio Mayfair from
20th July - 2nd August 2017
