Potlikker Bentonville

August 9, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Hive and the Southern Foodways Alliance invites you to an evening of southern food, film and drink at the Potlikker Bentonville Film Festival. Join us to sample foods made with fresh ingredients from local farms prepared by Akansas’ finest chefs, sip a cold beverage and listen to live bluegrass music by Foley’s Van.

At 7:00, there will be a showing of Joe York’s documentary films about Arkansas, including Fish Ribs in Little Rock, and a short film about the iconic McClard’s Bar-B-Q restaurant in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Ovens Are for Pies. Joe York, a University of Mississippi filmmaker who frequently works with the Southern Foodways Alliance, is well known for his honest portrayals of the South’s food and people.

About the Southern Foodways Alliance: The Southern Foodways Alliance documents, studies, and celebrates the diverse food cultures of the changing American South. We set a common table where black and white, rich and poor — all who gather — may consider our history and our future in a spirit of reconciliation.

A member-supported non-profit, based at the University of Mississippi’s Center for the Study of Southern Culture, we stage symposia, produce documentary films, collect oral histories, sponsor scholarship, mentor students, and publish great writing. Donations from generous individuals, foundations, and companies fund our good work.

Tickets are priced at $75 and include food, film and drink.
