“45RPM” is a dark comedy that extends the world of the classic American road movie into multiple mediums while exploring rich Southern history.
The film follows Charlie Clark, a struggling artist who seeks a connection between her artwork and her deceased father’s music. By trying to track down a rare copy of her father’s only cut on a 45 record, Charlie finds herself out of her element in Memphis with no leads. Louie Traxler, a record store owner and an obsessive collector, sees a chance to do what he does best. The two of them hit the road in a rumbling vintage Pontiac, scouring the South in search of the elusive 45 that hails from the heyday of ‘60s garage rock.
Drawing on Arkansas’ unique musical history, showcasing local artists and featuring original music, 45RPM pulls together a wealth of untapped modern talent as well as Southern music legends like bluesman CeDell Davis, rockabilly pioneer Joyce Green, and early garage rockers like The Coachmen and The Spyders.
