Former Stax Records mogul Al Bell ushers in the D.C. debut of Take Me to the River, a documentary that traces the roots of Memphis' influential blues and soul sound. The film features a line-up of soul legends -- from Bobby "Blue" Bland to Mavis Staples to Bobby Rush -- recalling the seminal Memphis scene in its heyday. After the screening, there will be a Q&A with Bell and some of the film's featured artists, followed by live music from soul singer William Bell ("You Don't Miss Your Water" and "I Forgot to be Your Lover").

More about the restoration:
The restoration of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent films has been the biggest and most complex restoration project undertaken by the BFI National Archive to date. Decades of damage and wear have been removed; the sharpness of the images improved; new shots discovered and intertitles and tinting restored. The BFI has used elements borrowed from seven international archives in the restoration process, but film materials from the BFI National Archive–including a number of original negatives–have been central to the project. Hitchcock’s silent films are essential to an understanding of his later work and these restorations now enable them to be seen afresh and discovered by new audiences across the world.

He has recorded music for DVD releases, BBC TV screenings and museum installations of silent films. Although principally a pianist, he often incorporates flute, accordion and keyboards into his performances, sometimes simultaneously. For more information, visit stephenhorne.co.uk.
