The Hollerin' Contest at Spivey's Corner

THE HOLLERIN’ CONTEST AT SPIVEY’S CORNER is a documentary short about the history, characters, and sounds of the National Hollerin’ Contest. Hollerin’ itself is considered by some to be the earliest form of communication between humans, and the competition has been held annually in the small town of Spivey's Corner, NC since 1969. The film follows the stories of three former champions as they attempt to reclaim their titles, and keep the oft-forgotten tradition of hollerin' alive.
