This movie is special to me. It's my baby, my favorite.
It launched my career and taught me how to be a filmmaker. But for years no one has been able to see it or own it.
Now you can!
I hope you enjoy your free download of my movie.
And please spread the word!
The story of a Memphis car thief who falls in love with one of his victims, THE POOR & HUNGRY is the previously unreleased first feature from Craig Brewer (HUSTLE & FLOW, BLACK SNAKE MOAN, FOOTLOOSE).
This gritty, black and white micro budget “digiflik” was written, directed, and edited by Brewer in the late 90’s on the cusp of the digital revolution for only $20,000. Utilizing local actors and an energetic handheld camera esthetic, this previously unseen first feature boasts strong performances set against a rough and soulful backdrop of Memphis.
