Memphis musicians on the silver screen in ‘Daylight Fades’
Shot in January 2009, the movie features more than 40 locations that will be recognizable to Memphians from Young Avenue Deli, Earnestine and Hazel’s and the P&H to Overton Park and the Mississippi Riverbank. Even cooler, though (at least to us!) is the huge amount of Memphis music that will be recognizable to your ears. The original score for the film was composed by Sean T. Faust with additional original tracks by Kenton Smith, with local artists Teflon Don, Amy LaVere, Lord T & Eloise, Al Kapone, Sore Eyes, Streetside Symphony, B.B. Cunningham and more filling out the soundtrack.
You can catch the premiere of Daylight Fades at the Paradiso next Tuesday, June 15 – the 6:30 p.m. showing is already sold out, but seats are available for the 9:15 at DaylightFades.com. They’re $14, and a portion of that sticker price will go to the 13th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival.
Suspense, drama, blood-sucking, seeing your neighborhood on a big screen AND all that Memphis music? You really can’t beat it, folks.
