Description

"Appalshop is a non-profit multi-disciplinary arts and education center in the heart of Appalachia producing original films, video, theater, music and spoken-word recordings, radio, photography, multimedia, and books."

For nearly 50 years, Appalshop filmmakers have been documenting life in Central Appalachia, training young people on cameras, and breaking new ground in community media-making.  

To view Appalshop's foundational contributions to rural cinema in the United States, check out the films in their store and view their Vimeo channel. On Vimeo, you can watch Elizabeth Barret's Stranger with a Camera and Portraits and Dreams: A Revisitation.
