Congratulations to Diane Sara Bouzgarrou & Thomas Jenkoe!
Their film THE LAST HILLBILLY is selected at ACID CANNES 2020.

Then, the film will have its world premiere at ACID CANNES 2020, and will be screened in September 2020 in Paris, Lyon, and Marseille.
“THE LAST HILLBILLY is a portrait of an Appalachian family through the words of one of their own. Documentary observation meets a surprising interior world to bear witness of a disappearing world.”
