Bradley Beesley‘s sequel to his breakout hit Okie Noodling will be screening this Friday and Saturday at the IFC Center in New York.

If you’re not familiar with the film, here’s a sum up from the release:

In 2001, filmmaker Bradley Beesley brought the strange subculture of barehanded catfishing to the screen in ‘Okie Noodling’, which won the Audience Choice Award and 1st runner-up for Best Documentary at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. Now he returns to his home state of Oklahoma to see how the sport has evolved over the last decade in ‘Okie Noodling II’. Revisiting the colorful, original cast and meeting some new and eccentric fishermen en route to the largest noodling tournament in the nation- this film explores the legalization issues and commercialization of this once backwoods practice.
