“Take Me to the River” is a feature documentary celebrating the inter-generational and interracial musical influence of Memphis during the time of pervasive discrimination and segregation. The film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a historic new album. The film is narrated by Terrence Howard, and features soul music greats including William Bell, Mavis Staples, Otis Redding and Bobby “Blue” Bland along with rappers Snoop Dogg, Yo Gotti, and child prodigy Lil P-Nut.
