Muscle Shoals: World Premier at Sundance 2013

USA - Park City, UT | Jan 8 2013 | (23:08:08 - EDT)

“Muscle Shoals” will make its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier, the highly anticipated music documentary takes a look at the iconic popular music, past and present, created in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

With undertones addressing racism and Native American history, the documentary reaches far beyond the town’s rich musical history. The 2013 Festival will be Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

“I am so honored to be able to premiere ‘Muscle Shoals’ at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,” said Filmmaker Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier. “To be among such great films and filmmakers is a privilege. I couldn’t think of a better platform to debut ‘Muscle Shoals’, I know this audience will be able to appreciate the great untold story of the spirituality, the magic and the range of music that was created in this small town in Alabama.”

Directed by Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier, “Muscle Shoals” is a feature length documentary about a place filled with magic and music, legend and folklore where the river is inhabited by a Native American muse who’s lured some of the greatest Rock and Roll and Soul legends of all time and drawn from them some of the most uplifting and important music ever created.

Music runs through the hills, the river, and the spirit of the people. It’s a place where, even before the civil rights movement really took shape, the color of your skin didn't matter inside the studio.

Under the spiritual influence of what the Native Americans recognized as the “Singing River”, the music created in “Muscle Shoals” is some of the most creative and defiant music in American history and changed the world while selling millions upon millions of copies worldwide.

Legendary artists including Gregg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Jimmy Cliff, Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Donna Jean Godchaux and many others bear witness to the magnetism and mystery of the place and why it remains a global influence and mystery today.

At its heart is Rick Hall, who founded FAME Studios. Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, he brought black and white musicians together to create music that would last for generations while also giving to birth to the unique “Muscle Shoals sound” and the rhythm section The Swampers. FAME’s house band, The Swampers, left to daringly start their own studio and ultimately were immortalized in the American anthem, “Sweet Home Alabama,” where Ronnie Van Zant sings “Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers….”

"I’ll Take You There," "Brown Sugar," "When a Man Loves a Woman,"  "I Never Loved A Man the Way That I Loved You," "Mustang Sally," "Tell Mama," "Kodachrome," "Sitting in Limbo," "Freebird" and "Mainstreet" are just a few of the tens of thousands of pieces of music created there which are the rich and soulful soundtrack woven throughout the film.

Raw and candid interviews, inspiring music, live performances that include a never before seen or heard recording by Alicia Keys at FAME Studios of a Bob Dylan track originally recorded in “Muscle Shoals”, along with the magic of the milieu itself capture and convey this tale.

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival will present 119 feature-length films, representing 32 countries and 51 first-time filmmakers, including 27 in competition. These films were selected from 12,146 submissions (429 more than for 2012), including 4,044 feature-length films and 8,102 short films. Of the feature film submissions, 2,070 were from the U.S. and 1,974 were international. 103 feature films at the Festival will be world premieres.
