Awendaw Squirrel Hunt

Every year on the day before Thanksgiving, members of the Colleton-Green family of Awendaw, South Carolina, head out to the woods to hunt squirrels for the annual feast. This film chronicles the tradition. Produced in association with the 2011 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival by the UM Media & Documentary Projects Center and the Southern Foodways Alliance.
