Director Statement

We are two guys who met 4 years ago in Speech and Debate, then realized we both attended the same film camp in Canton, MS (our hometown) we decided it would be cool to film a documentary so we chose to feature Canton, MS which has so much charm and we discovered it's rich history by listening to stories told firsthand.
