About the Show

A critically acclaimed documentary examining the Jewish experience in the American South. Travelling in a vintage Cadillac, film-maker Brian Bain, a third-generation Jew from New Orleans, takes a 4,200-mile road trip through Delta flatlands, small towns in Mississippi, Texas ranches and sprawling Sunbelt cities to uncover the unique and diverse history of Southern Jews. Along the way Bain woos his future wife and discusses Jewish participation in the Civil Rights Movement with Andrew Young.
