ABOUT THE FILM
A good butcher listens. For nearly 18 years Tolo Martinez has manned the counter at Cliff’s Meat Market, learning "country" English to serve college professors, blue-collar workers and long-time patrons alike. Un Buen Carnicero goes behind the courtesies of the butcher's counter to explore how Tolo and Cliff define a changing South still fighting for freedom for all.
