Stan Woodward (www.thewoodwardstudio.com) is an award winning filmmaker whose life's work has been devoted to the capture of last-generation practitioners of folk life traditions and their communities in the South.
Woodward's body of work has produced a diverse portfolio of Southern culture and folk life documentaries that capture the unique fabric of Southern folk culture. His films thread through folk heritage foodways traditions deeply rooted in the agrarian South and threatened by massive shifts and changes in today's society, and by the passing of the tradition-bearers, people who honor their roots and keep them alive and well through a language we all speak: the sensory experience of food.
His works include "Carolina Hash," the award winning film that explores how hash is unique to South Carolina. There are numerous segments of "Carolina Hash" filmed in Greenwood County.
