Our Mission

Red Dirt Productions celebrates the rich connections between people and place through educational programs. Our stories illuminate our ties to the land, to the past and to one another.

Our roots are in the red clay hills of the southern United States, and our stories extend across the globe.

Our Southern Food Film

At the Common Table: The Hidden History of Southern Food

Our documentary, At the Common Table, uses the foods of the southern table to explore the deep connections between Native Americans, poor whites and enslaved Africans that laid the foundations of southern culture. A story of creativity and cooperation, At the Common Table, illuminates a history shaped by those at the bottom of society.

Cornbread and collards will never taste the same.
