The SFA’s films celebrate the people and places who enrich the landscape of Southern food and culture.


Charleston Soul Food

Baked chicken, fried pork chops, barbecued pigs feet, cabbage, okra soup, red rice, and mac and cheese are just a few of the choices at Bertha’s in North Charleston, South Carolina. The daily lunch special is just $4, and the place is managed by Bertha’s three daughters. Arrive early, before the line wraps out the front door.
