The last Hillbilly
Thomas Jenkoe / Diane Sara Bouzgarrou
For generations, Brian Ritchie’s family has been living in the heart of the Appalachians, belonging to the so called “hillbillies”. The area has been left in dire straits after the mines closed down. Caught between a mythical past and a murky future, Brian is one of the last witnesses of a vanishing world that inspires his poetry.
Diane Sara Bouzgarrou and Thomas Jenkoe live and work together in Lille. Diane’s film, Je ne me souviens de rien (2017), has been selected in Cinéma du réel, Torino and RIDM. Thomas has directed Souvenirs de la Géhenne, awarded in Cinéma du Réel in 2015 and selected in Rotterdam and Brive among others. The Last Hillbilly is their first feature film.
