The Baylor University film and digital media division of the department of communication studies in the College of Arts and Sciences, along with the Texas Independent Film Network, will screen a documentary double feature including "Barbecue: A Texas Love Story" and "Something's Brewin in Shiner" at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 1, in Room 101 of Castellaw Communications Center, 219 Baylor Ave, on the Baylor campus.

"Barbecue: A Texas Love Story" is narrated by former Governor Ann Richards and journeys through the state of Texas to find new people through the bonds of barbecue from the Great Texas Mosquito Festival to an East Texas church that raises money through "Holy BBQ."

The second documentary, "Something's Brewin in Shiner," tells the story from 2003 when a secret new beer was being made in Spoetzl Brewery and everyone in the town had something to say about the new addition.

Guest speaker Mike Woolf, director of "Something's Brewin in Shiner," will be available for a Q&A session after the double feature screening.

The event is free and open to the public.
