Downtown Mall : Regal 2
Big Moccasin2014. USA. 65 min.
Director: Andrew Moynehan, Chelsea Moynehan Featuring: Geraldine Frazier, Steve Burke, Mouse, Polo
Deep in the Appalachian Valley, filmmakers Chelsea and Andrew Moynehan capture the ethos of life along Big Moccasin Road, a 25-mile stretch in Southwest Virginia. Geraldine Frazier, Steve Burke, Mouse, and Polo – this charismatic quartet embodies a particular, perhaps peculiar mountain culture. This documentary brims with colorful stories that paint a portrait of Appalachian tradition and faith. Interweaving tales of neighborhood grudges, high school memories, and undying affection to the land itself, all point at the richness of simplicity, the fragility of life, and the inevitability of death.
