NPR's Bob Mondello talks about film and stereotypes

http://66.225.205.104/MR20100317.mp3

When native Southerners and transplants to the region meet up in Charlotte, their ways of thinking and relating, often clash. People's views of regional cultures have traditionally been influenced by the media - including movies. WFAE's Scott Graf discussed that phenomenon with NPR film critic Bob Mondello, who has studied the role of films in shaping stereotypes about the South. The North-South culture clash in Charlotte will be the topic of our Public Conversations forum Thursday, March 18, at the Mint Museum. More information and free registration here.
