Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Craig Brewer (born December 6, 1971) is an American film director and screenwriter. His 2005 movie Hustle & Flow won the Audience Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and achieved commercial success, along with an Academy award for Best Original Song, "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp." Brewer's first film, The Poor and Hungry (2000) was produced using a $20,000 inheritance from his father's death, his family as crew, and a hand held mini-DV for the camera work. This indie film went on to win at the Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony 4th Annual Hollywood Film Festival, August 2-7, 2000. Brewer took the name of the movie from an iconic Memphis beer joint, "The P and H" (now generally known as the "Poor and Hungry" though the initials originally stood for "Pearl and Harrison," first names of the couple who first owned it).
