American Hollow

American Hollow is the story of an Appalachian family caught between century-old traditions and the modern world. Rory Kennedy challenges the cinematic cliches of Deliverance and The Beverly Hillbillies by combining extraordinary footage and interviews with the Bowling family, led by 68-year-old Iree Bowling. Although a disturbing portrait of poverty, turmoil, and hopelessness, this film is ultimately a joyous, life-affirming exploration of the lives, loves and dreams of a distinctly American family. To Kennedy, the Bowlings are part of an endangered American species, representing some of the nation’s oldest values.
