THE SPIRITS STILL MOVE THEM

Watch the Movie Trailer HereThe Center's newest documentary film focuses on the iconic moonshiners. Rather than the stereotypes of lazy, drunken mountaineers, moonshiners were some of the most entrepreneurial and creative farmers in a community who not only provided a public service but helped to put food on the table for themselves and their communities. The stories are both heart-rending, funny and moving and open a window into the soul of the Southern Appalachian world that's rapidly vanishing. All screenings include a talk with the director and local moonshiners. Buy your ticket at the move theater when you arrive. As a special offer for our ticketbuyers, if you purchase the DVD in advance, you get $5 off the DVD price and save the additional $5 shipping and handling.

The Spirits Still Move Them DVD
The DVD of our new, highly acclaimed documentary film. Truth is stranger (and more interesting) than fiction. Mountaineers were masters of making something out of nothing, whether it be crops from bare soil or liquor from corn and fruit. These are the fascinating, funny and heart-rendering stories of the moonshiners who evaded the law (sometimes) and found creative ways to survive, put food on the table, and produce a product that we still enjoy today. Please Note: If you will be in the Hendersonville area and want to pick up the DVD and poster and save the Shipping & Handling, Contact Us and we will provide you with a private link. You must purchase in advance before you can pick it up once the link is sent.
