1617KUDZUKUDZU1976color16 min16mm An offbeat, witty, informative documentary about Pueraria thunbergiana. . . the vine that is devouring the South. Originally brought to this country as a means of erosion control, it is now threatening to take over large portions of the Southern landscape. Featuring the Kudzu Queen, the Kudzu Band and a cast of other real life characters, plus appearances by Jimmy Carter and Georgia novelist/poet James Dickey, the film illustrates how Southern folk humor and traditions have centered around a botanical pest.
