Hollow Tree

Friday, Nov 3, 2023 at 6:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With director Kira Akerman, landscape architect Kate Orff, and filmmaker Kirsten Johnson in person

Dir. Kira Akerman. 2022, 74 mins. DCP. At a time of severe environmental crisis—rising water levels, storm surges, rapid land degradation—three teenagers come together to face the climate reality in their home state of Louisiana. In so doing, they connect with their roots in a new way. An experiment in documentary filmmaking in a time of climate crisis, Hollow Tree won the Audience Award and Best Louisiana Feature Award at the New Orleans Film Festival where it made its world premiere. This special presentation will be followed by a discussion between director Kira Akerman and landscape architect Kate Orff (SCAPE), moderated by director and cinematographer Kirsten Johnson (Dick Johnson Is Dead, Cameraperson).

Presented in partnership with The Climate Museum.
