Muscle Shoals (2013)
Directed by Greg Camalier, this documentary celebrates Rick Hall, the founder of FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Faced with the racial hostility of the day, the producer/songwriter brought black and white together to create the signature Muscle Shoals sound evident in hits such as “Brown Sugar,” “I’ll Take You There” and “When a Man Loves a Woman.”
A Band Called Death (2012)
Directed by Mark Covino and Jeff Howlett, the documentary tells the story of Death, a band formed by three teenage African-American brothers in the early 70s that played punk music before “punk” was even a thing. They only completed one demo tape before disbanding, but decades later that tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger – finally giving the band their long overdue recognition.
