From John Beifuss at the CA:
The Library Channel (WYPL-TV Channel 18) will continue to air locally produced independent films this month on the "Last Train to Memphis" program. It's coordinated by (who else?) the local production company Last Train to Memphis (creators of the Charles Bukowski-meets-Shemp Howard dipsomaniacal comedy "Service with a Smile").
The program's September lineup includes two especially noteworthy screenings: "Project 366," an experimental "photojournal" of Memphis coordinated by Willy Bearden and David Tankersly; and "Morning Ritual," a brilliant black-and-white horror short directed by J. Lazarus Hawk and produced by Craig Brewer. The film won the Best Narrative Short award at the 2001 Indie Memphis Film Festival.
Also included will be two shorts by Danny Stanford and Corey Smithmier ("Battle of the Gods" and the promisingly titled "Beat Down in Clowntown"), as well as some music videos.
The "Last Train" program airs five times weekly: Midnight Sunday; 2 a.m. Thursday, 10:30 p.m. Thursday, 1:30 a.m. Saturday and 11 p.m. Saturday.
