Biography

Craig Brewer at 2005 Sundance Film Festival


A native of Virginia who spent his childhood in Memphis, writer/director Craig Brewer grew up writing and directing plays in school, ultimately landing at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. Missing the South, Brewer moved back to Memphis with his wife, Jodi. After his father's untimely death, Brewer use the small inheritance to make his first feature. Shot on digital video, The Poor and Hungry became a hit on the festival circuit and was later sold to the Independent Film Channel. Brewer's next script, Hustle & Flow, was partly inspired by the experience of finding his own voice and the many collaborations it took to get his first film made.
