About the film:
hillbilly takes a personal and political journey into the heart of Appalachia, exploring the role of the media and culture in the creation of the iconic American “hillbilly.” The film examines the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of the infamous stereotype. hillbilly is a timely and urgent exploration of how we see and think about the South, poverty, and rural identity in contemporary America.
