6:30pm
  'hillbilly' screening and Q&A with the filmmakers  
(Movie/Film)

Join filmmakers from the School of Performing Arts' cinema program for a screening of "hillbilly," co-directed by Ashley York and Sally Rubin. York and Rubin will introduce the film and conduct a live Q&A after the screening.

In "hillbilly," directors Ashley York and Sally Rubin show the evolution of the uneducated, promiscuous 'hillbilly' stereotype in media and culture, linking it with corporate exploitation of Appalachia's natural resources.

The film examines the experience of rural voters and seeks to expand the understanding of the region by featuring diverse communities in Appalachia, including Appalshop's Appalachian Media Institute where young adults find community and refuge, and the Affrilachian Poets, a grassroots group of poets of color living in the Appalachian region.
