I was honored to present Hollow alongside Barbara Kopple (Harlan County, USA) at Camden International Film Fest. I would have never dreamed that I would be on stage with Kopple, an Academy award-winning director. It was an honor and special thanks to Sean Flynn and Ben Fowlie at CIFF for pulling it together.

McDowell County is a very patriotic community and tomorrow they will continue their tradition of holding one of the country’s longest ongoing Veterans Day parades in the country.
And in honor of Veterans Day, we are releasing three short stories from residents in McDowell County. We interviewed over 50 individuals this summer, many of which shared stories of war and returning home after. Today we would like to share three of those from Ellis Ray Williams, Ed Shepard and Bill Bolt. 
Ellis Ray Williams shares his experience as an African American soldier in WWII. 
Ed Shepard talks about his time as a sniper in the Marine Corps and his return home to Welch.
Bill Bolt talks about returning to Coalwood from three years in the Navy, meeting the love of his life and watching his community change.
The stories can all be experienced on Cowbird!
Please watch and share with your friends as we pay respect to our Veterans!
