DESTINY ON THE MAIN STAGE

Destiny On The Main Stage follows four women and their families in the strip club world of Dallas, Texas. We tend to often over-simplify the sex industry, the girls are seen as wh***s and the men as perverts, but it’s actually far more complicated than that. This film shows the delicate balance of being a mother, daughter, sister, friend and lover and the shapes we often bend ourselves into to find and keep love.

LAST NIGHT AT JUNIOR'S

This is a story of unsolved crime, racism, financial exploitation, a family at war, and the enduring power of the blues. Junior Kimbrough has been called the greatest bluesman of the late 20th century, but his legacy remains one of contradiction and bitterness. Hailing from the prolific musical hotbed of North Mississippi’s Hill Country, Junior never found mainstream commercial success, but his churning, mesmeric and raw blues style was a major influence on many other, more successful musicians.
