Bin Yah: There's No Place Like Home 

A documentary film by Justin Nathanson about the Gullah community of East Cooper

What is it? A documentary film by Justin Nathanson about the Gullah community of East Cooper. Bin Yah captures a range of community members who describe their land-tied traditions, like making sweetgrass baskets and fishing. Along with this sense of place comes a sense of urgency for the community's survival as roads and development cut apart their neighborhoods. A panel discussion with community members and filmmakers will follow the screenings.

Why see it? All of Lowcountry culture has been touched by Gullah culture in some way — from language to architecture. Locals know the value of learning about the evolving history of a people. They know the value of realizing the role of the Gullah in the present culture.

Who should go? Tourists who want a sense of the Lowcountry. Locals who would like to have a better sense of our shared history.
