feature: filmmaker artemus jenkins explores the shared experiences of life in new movie about atlanta creatives – ‘if you know the words, feel free’

October 20, 2015

Check out filmmaker Artemus Jenkins‘ new feature film, ‘If You Know the Words, Feel Free’. The movie (produced by KarynRose Bruyning and Sean Fahie) centers on a group of Atlanta based artists and creatives inhabiting Atlanta, and explores their shared experiences. Jenkins states, “‘If You Know the Words, Feel Free’ is a film about life; the various ways it tests, molds and prepares us to live it. Life is something we all experience differently, but it still stands as a song we at some point, all know the words to. It doesn’t matter how we know or who taught us. It doesn’t matter what octave you choose to sing in, be it nice and easy or double time, a common thread is not hard to find.” Watch below, and see some of the featured artists (and/or their work) below.
