This clip is a montage of reenactment scenes from the Insignia Films feature documentary "The Roads to Memphis," about Martin Luther King's assassin, James Earl Ray. Young shot the scenes on the Red One camera, using the format's shallow depth of field to help give the scenes a more impressionistic, less literal feeling. The film was created for the PBS series The American Experience.
