Abstract:

Mississippi has always been known for its rich literary and musical heritage even though it also has the highest illiteracy rate of any state. It's been the home of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams, and Muddy Waters. Today, a new generation of artists is emerging from this place that some say embodies the best of American culture, despite poverty and social ills. Through the artists profiled in this film, Barry Hannah (writer), David Malone (blues musician), Lewis Nordan (writer), Donna Tartt (writer) and Morgan Freeman (actor), we see how the spirit of place inspires their creativity.
