WELCOME TO THE TABLE, BIC's NEWEST DOCUMENTARY FILM...

In March, the Barrier Islands Center premiered our fifth documentary, Welcome to the Table, working once again with Academy Award nominee James Spione.  Each of the five films examines an important thread in the rich cultural tapestry that makes the Eastern Shore so vibrant.

In Welcome to the Table, long-time residents and new arrivals reveal how local foodways provide a powerful connection to the land and water, to family and community, to memory and tradition.  The movie is filled with great stories, told by all kinds of local characters, about their personal relationship to the land and the water that defines this region.  Visually, it is an absolute treat!

We are very proud of this newest film and believe viewers everywhere will find it both fascinating and uplifting.  Just like choosing among our own children, we can't pick a favorite!  But, we would love to hear which of the BIC films you like best and why!

Copies of the DVD will be available for purchase in early August in the BIC museum gift shop or online at barrierislandscenter.org.  It is available now for viewing at the museum.
