We recently had the pleasure of talking with filmmaker Adam Forrester, whose film, Eat White Dirt, is showing at this year’s Indie Grits Festival.
1. What is your connection to the South?
I was born and raised in a small town in Alabama, Phenix City or “Sin City” as it was known in the 50’s. It’s a town that most likely no one has head of but may have passed through on their way to the gulf coast from Atlanta. I left my hometown as soon as I could to move out to California, and since I returned to the South in 2009, I see this region with a fresh perspective, its beauty is more prominent than ever before.
