BIC Film: Welcome to the Table


The Barrier Islands Center presents Welcome to the Table. Academy Award-nominated director James Spione continues his acclaimed series of Eastern Shore documentaries with a touching exploration of the distinctive foodways that define this unique coastal region.

Shaped by European, Native American and African culinary traditions, the mouth-watering dishes featured in Welcome to the Table reflect the rich and complex heritage behind this deceptively simple cuisine.

But food is much more than sustenance to the residents of the Shore. Through candid interviews, historic photos and gorgeous cinematography, the film reveals how the food we eat provides a powerful connection to our families, our communities, our ethnic and cultural histories.
