Storyline

Centers on an investigation into one of the many suspicious jailhouse 'suicides' among Mississippi's poor white and black convicts. But the filmmaker's quest through Blues Country is also an ode to a much-misunderstood region, impoverished and long-tainted by media stereotypes of outrageous racism and inbred ignorance. True, Chambers finds fear, intolerance, and dark rumors of secret burials in the peach orchards. But he also sympathizes with an insular, rural culture plagued by gangs and drugs imported from the big cities. From the paroled renegade whose pit bull savages the film crew, to the rebirth of hope in a marriage ceremony, the genuine mondo Mississippi will haunt you longer than Hollywood's ghosts and burnings.
