Indie Memphis Daily Pick (Saturday)

comment
The Indie Memphis Film Festival continues today with a live performance by the Alloy Orchestra, which will provide accompaniment to a screening of the Lon Chaney silent classic The Phantom of the Opera. (See Flyer story here.) But the real don’t-miss screening might be of Arkansas “outsider cinema” filmmaker Phil Chambliss, who has made short films in obscurity for decades only to recently become an art-world cause celebre. Three of Chambliss’ films will screen, beginning at 5:15 today at the Muvico Peabody Place theatre downtown. Read the Flyer’s take on Chambliss or check out a lengthy profile on the “Auteur from Arkansas” in the Nashville Scene from his 2004 debut at the Nashville Film Festival.
