MEMPHIS MAJIC is a documentary that weaves dance and history to portray a relevant reflection of modern culture. The brainchild of Emmy-nominated director and Memphis native, Eddie Bailey, the film looks at the city through the lens of a 30-year old Memphis-born street dance called Jookin’. Featuring street dance superstar, Lil Buck, MEMPHIS MAJIC seamlessly connects urban dance, Hip-Hop, politics, and history to reveal how one of America’s most important cities was built. It is a universal story that gets to the heart of the city’s rich culture, history, race relations, and socioeconomic barriers.
