HOW THE POWER OF MUSIC CREATES A PLACE FOR HOPE AND DREAMS

In the 1960s, the legen­da­ry record label Stax Records was a dri­ving for­ce behind the US civil rights move­ment. This com­mit­ment con­ti­nues through the Stax Music Academy in Memphis, which every year, accepts inqui­si­ti­ve young peop­le of all back­grounds. Music hel­ps them find their own voice, defy cir­cum­s­tan­ces and face their rea­li­ty. The young peop­le dance, sing, laugh, com­po­se, and dis­cuss racism, the trans­for­ma­ti­ve power of music and their role as the next genera­ti­on of artists. An ener­ge­tic and moving docu­men­ta­ry, full of self-con­fi­dence, authen­ti­ci­ty, pas­si­on, and soul.
