Leon Bridges - This is Home
“This is Home” is a documentary about the quick rise from dishwasher and small-town singer song-writer to Grammy-nominated artist, Leon Bridges. Directed by legendary photographer and filmmaker Danny Clinch, the film features Bridges, his bandmates (Austin Jenkins, Jeff Dazey, Andrew Skates), his photographer Rambo, and his mother, Lisa Sawyer. They reflect on how in just a year’s time, Bridges went from performing at open mic nights to selling out venues around the world with his unique reincarnation of soul. Leon wanted to share the documentary with his home by hosting a special screening in his beloved hometown of Forth Worth, TX. The screening, presented by Squarespace and Gorilla vs. Bear, took place on June 29th at Shipping & Receiving – the same venue that housed his first ever full-band concert. The proceeds from ticket sales and the limited-edition posters created by Preacher were donated to the Texas Council on Family Violence, a Fort Worth based charity.
