Before and After: The 2001 Flood, 11 years later #WV #Appalachia #documentary
Last week, Renee Bolden submitted footage she had shot during the 2001 flood in McDowell County. Just over a decade ago, Renee filmed a house float past her mother’s porch. Today we went back to all of the places she had shot and reshot the areas. Many structures have washed away and some improvements have been made.
The three forms of video—footage from 2001, Renee’s footage today, and my camera footage of Renee shooting and talking—will be an interactive feature on HOLLOW once we launch.
