Reel to Real: Eric Jambor Presents

Thursday, June 17 | 7 pm

Come to the Brooks this Thursday for two great films: Leo’s Room, the next Global Lens installment, at 2pm and Reel to Real: Eric Jambor at 7pm!

Jambor, executive director for Indie Memphis and local filmmaker, will be showing his 1996 short film, “Gamalost,” which premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival and was awarded the Gold Award for best original dramatic short at WorldFest Charleston. Afterwards, Jambor will screen his choice for the feature presentation, Hard Core Logo (1996). A film about a band’s last chance attempt at success, Hard Core Logo delves into the lives of a punk rock group whose issues and personalities rise to the surface and fill the viewer’s eye with a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road.

The Reel to Real film series will surely whet your appetite for the new Who Shot Rock and Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present exhibition opening on June 26th. C.Scott McCoy and Laura Jean Hocking are currently working on a documentary about the infamous Antenna Club and will be featured in the next R2R, Sunday, July 25th at 2pm. Then, we’ll have two more music-themed Reel to Reals with Scott Bomar who composed the music for Hustle and Flow and Black Snake Moan in August and Robert Gordon, author of It Came from Memphis and the Muddy Water bio, Can’t be Satisfied.
