BeCause Foundation ignites social change through the powerful fusion of documentary filmmaking and creative outreach and engagement projects. BeCause films tell moving stories about individuals, organizations, and communities who, with compassion and determination, are finding innovative solutions to complex social problems. By implementing engagement campaigns and coalition building around the films, BeCause Foundation helps transform solutions into broad-based movements for social change.
Change has come to rural Tennessee.
Set against the backdrop of a shaky economy, "Welcome to Shelbyville" takes an intimate look at a southern town as its residents - whites and African Americans, Latinos and Somalis grapple with their beliefs, their histories, and their evolving ways of life.
"Welcome to Shelbyville" is directed and produced by Kim Snyder and executive produced by BeCause Foundation in association with Active Voice.
