  • Bin Yah: There's No Place Like Home

    Bin Yah takes a matter-of-fact look at the Gullah-Geechee community
      In Bin Yah, a documentary about the plight of the Gullah-Geechee community around the Charleston area, you meet a 101-year-old sweetgrass basket maker, an animated chieftess, succinctly speaking activists, and a good humored reverend. The range of characters are intimately developed, while conscientious editing maintains a good pace. Informational doses are lifted along by charged jazz, aerial shots, and historical photos.

    Old with Old, New with New
      The Memminger Auditorium on Beaufain Street is undergoing the finishing touches of an enchanting $6 million renovation by Huff + Gooden Architects of Charleston. Built in 1939 by Albert Simons, the historic building features time-worn integrity without being historically precious. As such, the architects were invited to think outside the neoclassical box.
