Welcome to Shelbyville

Set in the heart of America’s bible belt, Welcome To Shelbyville follows a small Southern town as they grapple with rapid demographic change and issues of immigrant integration. Shot between the 2008 Presidential election and spring 2009, the film captures the complexity of the African American, Latino, white and Somali subjects as their lives intertwine against the backdrop of a crumbling economy and a promising new Administration.
