Description:
  [Screening @ the Tiburon Film Society]

Hillbillies haven’t died off; they’ve simply become neo-hillbillies. Three families of musicians in the Ozark Mountains of Southwestern Missouri give new meaning to the word “hillbilly.” Float down the backwaters, soak up some old time religion, savor a washboard duel, and bask in the neon lights of the pseudo-hillbilly showtown Branson. Lean back and merge into hillbilliness.

Set against the magnificient landscape of the Missouri Ozarks, Rick Minnich's film follows one beautiful day in the life of Springfield's Big Smith, a band that creates music true to its roots - and always brings the house down. Minnich depicts religion, family, and the Ozarks in the least hokey way imagineable, offering a portrait of the devout that's authentic and convincing. Best of all, HOME MADE introduces us to Mark Bilyieu, Big Smith's unpretentious and super talented singer-songwriter.
