Reel South

About This Program



The American South is like no place else in the country. Its people, culture, landscape and history can both captivate and bewilder. In the cherished tradition of Southern storytelling, Reel South reveals the South's proud yet complicated heritage, as told by a diversity of voices and perspectives.

This public-television series showcases authentic documentary films (feature length and shorts) that reckon with the South's past, present, and future. Join us on a journey through the Reel South.

Hosted by Grammy-winning recording artist Darius Rucker, the third season of Reel South features ten documentaries highlighting Southerners' passion and perseverance in an age of emboldened civic engagement: from a comedian-turned-mayoral candidate agitating for disability rights to gay families fighting for equality to New Orleans' reckoning with its Confederate monuments. Bookending the lineup are two raucous tales rooted in authentic Southern music.

Reel South is a collaboration between UNC-TV and SCETV.
