The Orchard has announced the digital release of hillbilly – directed by Sally Ruben and Ashley York (Tig) – on January 8, 2019.
hillbilly won Best Documentary Feature at the 2018 Los Angeles Film Festival and recently premiered in New York at DOC NYC. The film is a timely and urgent exploration of how we see and think about poverty and rural identity in contemporary America, offering a call for dialogue during this divisive time in U.S. history. The filmmakers go on a personal and political journey into the heart of the Appalachian coalfields, exploring the role of media representation in the creation of the iconic American “hillbilly,” and examining the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of this infamous stereotype.
