Re: “Neal Hutcheson

The original film I made for Popcorn to sell, "This is the Last Dam Run of Likker I'll Ever Make," is only available from him, for $35: Popcorn Sutton/PO Box 38/Parrottsville,TN/27843 I think it might be temporarily unavailable, or you may need to make the check out to Pam Sutton. Yesterday Popcorn was sentenced to 18 months in prison for distillation and related charges. (He has thirty days to report) The prosecution used a twenty year-old video clip of Popcorn capping a still to argue that he would be physically fit enough to resume moonshining if let out on probation/house-arrest. In reality it is 2009 and he is sick and weak. House arrest and a wrist-monitor has kept Popcorn in check for the past ten months and could continue to do so as long as the court felt necessary. The prosecution's insistence on prison-time was petty, vindictive and mean. -Neal

Re: “Neal Hutcheson

I thought I would add a little information here about the work with Popcorn. Initially, after getting to be friends with Popcorn over the course of making Mountain Talk, I wanted to make a documentary about him. He wanted me to make a tape for him to sell, so we struck a sort of bargain. I would make the tape he wanted and then have the footage for my documentary. The first result was called "This Is The Last Run of Likker I'll Ever Make," which is the tape (on VHS) that only Popcorn sells. His only request was that I make it as long as possible so folks get their money's worth. (Except that when he saw me filming some mountain fields out of his car, he told me, Don't put none of that *#@& in my video.) He is a remarkable salesperson and the tapes have sold well and gone far. From that material, plus a little other footage shot later, I have made a shorter and somewhat different documentary about Popcorn and his last batch called "The Last One." It has screened here and there, even in Berlin, and been appreciated, though it has not exactly been the toast of the festival circuit. I hope to make it available at some point. Since that hot summer of 2002 when Pop made his last batch, I have travelled extensively with him, sometimes filming and sometimes just having fun. There is no one better to travel with. I hope to complete another film on him one day. His health has not been great in the past couple of years, but he manages to keep on keepin' on. I have just finished making a DVD for him of "The Last Run of Likker," so he should have that for sale in a matter of weeks.
