One of the films at this month’s St. Louis International Film Festival is about the history of Cairo, Illinois, the southernmost town in the state.
Host Steve Potter talks with co-directors and filmmakers Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright of “Between Two Rivers.” Potter is also joined by Stace England, the lead singer of Stace England and the Salt Kings.
England calls Cairo the most fascinating town in America, and a few years ago, came out with a CD highlighting the town.
