Rednecks + Culchies

In the sometimes disturbing documentary Rednecks and Culchies, shot entirely in St. Louis, the drugs and alcohol problems of the American working class are studied from the perspective of an Irish redneck. Tony Monaghan was raised in a large, poor family in rural western Ireland. With only five years of education, he left home as a teenage migrant worker to one day own and run a successful construction business in St. Louis, Missouri. Having overcome the most difficult of obstacles, he is baffled by the apathy and the substance abuse problems of American construction workers.
