Appreciating Diversity Film Series: "Hillbilly"
Event Date: 
November 3, 2019 - 12:30 pm

Since the 2016 presidential election, that cultural divide has only expanded and deepened. With their documentary Hillbilly, co-directors Ashley York and Sally Rubin — both natives of Appalachia— have made a complex film about complex people.
