“Slow Burning – builds its tension so subtly you don’t realize you’ve been holding your breath” – Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter.
Holding our breaths? Uh oh!
Director Laviad says about the time she started identifying herself as a feminist, she began directing films in San Francisco in the 1980s. Her 10 documentary and narrative films look at complex social and political issues from the point of view of female protagonists, she says in a statement. “Making films from the point of view of women is a way to remind us that women’s ways of understanding and acting in the world matter, and are worth showing – and this theme is recurrent in all my work.”

What the Filmmakers Say
Since the presidential election, cultural divide in America has been the source of riveting and visceral discussions and arguments. Stereotyping and slurs are rampant, finger-pointing and name-calling abound. hillbilly is a personal and political journey by the filmmakers into the heart of the Appalachian coalfields, exploring the role of media misrepresentation in their creation of the iconic American “hillbilly,” and examining the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of this infamous stereotype.
hillbilly will surprise if not shock imaginations because of its revelations, such as the renown artists, poets, activists, queer musicians, “Affrilachian” poets, and intersectional feminists who are unexpected voices emerging from this historically misunderstood region. Author, feminist, and social activist bell hooks is a hillbilly.
