B.B. King: The Life of Riley

June 20 @ 6:30 pm

BB King: The Life Of Riley is the much-lauded feature documentary film on the extraordinary life of Blues legend B.B. King, who worked closely with director Jon Brewer for 2 years to create this powerful film. At 88 years old, King, his family, friends and contemporaries unveil the true-life drama that was the springboard for the future ‘King of the Blues’. Battling unrelenting racism and the humiliation of segregation whilst working in the cotton fields as an orphaned child, King lived to overcome the toughest critics in the entertainment industry and ultimately be hailed as one of the kingpins of an entire genre of music. Including appearances by Aaron Neville, Bono, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Willis, Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Morgan Freeman, and many, many more, this candid biopic of the life story of one of our living legends is highlighted by rare archive footage and beautifully shot scenes of the deep south.
