About this course:

Co-directors Sally Rubin and Ashley York have brought us an award winning film that looks at how cultural stereotypes shape political and economic policy and deform the self-image of the people being stereotyped (Best Documentary at the 2018 LA Film Festival and an official selection at DOC NYC). Hillbilly goes on a personal and political journey into the heart of the Appalachian coalfields, exploring the role of media representation in the creation of the iconic American hillbilly, and examines the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of this infamous stereotype. Sally Rubin will be in attendance for a Q&A session. She earned her M.A. in Documentary Film and Video from Stanford University and has been making documentary films for the past 15 years. She is now an LA based filmmaker and editor, and full-time documentary professor at Chapman University. Ashley York grew up in Appalachia and co-directed the film with Sally.
