Cotton Takes the High Road and the Low Road
Most people who have driven South Carolina's rural roads have seen the many cotton fields dotting our countryside. But have you ever wondered where all that cotton goes? Our next guest decided to follow the fluffy white stuff all the way to Chinese textile mills and back to department stores right here in the Palmetto State.
Mike Switzer interviews Laura Kissel, an independent filmmaker whose documentary entitled “Cotton Road” won an award at the Beaufort International Film Festival earlier this year and will be appearing again next week at the Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia. And Mandy Fang is a professor at the University of South Carolina and the composer of the film's soundtrack, which has been garnering plenty of its own attention.
