Christopher Reyes: "My Memphis"

Nice story in the CA on local filmmaker Christopher Reyes -- of -- and the upcoming screening of his film, "My Memphis."

Screening is Wednesday at Malco Paradiso at 5:30 p.m. and Craig Brewer will introduce the film.

"My Memphis," a film directed and produced by artist Christopher Reyes, uses Wild Bill's -- a legendary blues bar at Vollintine and Avalon -- and an assortment of people, places and things to do to recruit young professionals to Memphis -- an effort that is becoming increasingly important as cities compete to attract talent.

"The cool thing about this is we didn't script this," said Reyes, the creator of Live from Memphis, a popular Web site devoted mostly to the local music scene. "We just set the cameras up and people told us what they liked about Memphis."
