In New Zealand, where I come from, we have what is known as the “Southern Man.” According to Wikipedia: “…the southern man is a stereotypical male from the more rural South Island, well used to the solitude and conditions of open mountain or hill country.”
With that ideology comes certain beliefs and preconceptions by the man and about the man.
As a filmmaker and storyteller living in the Deep South of the United States, I see more and more Southerners challenging their beliefs and even their cultural history. In doing so, they are often left asking, “Who am I? What am I? Southern Man talks to men of the South to find out.

Meeting Olive & Mitchell
For a class reunion, martial arts guru Darryl Hieneken returns to the college town where he graduated.

Mitchell Hue, an up and coming martial artist, is the subject of a documentary by Antipodean filmmaker Metofeaz Turpontine. The fact that Hieneken was a sperm donor to pay his way through college gives Turpontine’s film a twist he could not have imagined.
