📅 Nov 2, 6:30pm at DCTV - Screening and Q&A moderated by RaMell Ross
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.
While HOLLOW TREE is about Louisiana, it models how communities everywhere can learn to look differently at their environments, understand how the climate crisis is inextricably bound together with social inequality, and apply the lessons learned to fight for justice in the climate crisis. This beautiful, reflective film humanizes the climate crisis and serves as an example of the ways that the arts can open up new avenues of awareness, empowering us all to act.
