Southern Circuit: Hollow Tree (Filmmaker in Attendance!)

Apr 17

Hollow Tree follows three teenagers coming of age in their sinking homeland of Louisiana. For the first time, they notice the Mississippi River’s engineering, stumps of cypress trees, and billowing smokestacks. Their different perspectives — as Indigenous, white, and Angolan young women — shape their story of the climate crisis. Southern Circuit is made possible through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
