“A poetic but hermetic journey into a debauched and dangerous Deep South….Minervini captures [his subject’s] ongoing breakdown with plenty of compassion and a flair for naturalistic beauty.” – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
Groundbreaking documentarian Roberto Minervini paints an intimate portrait of the poverty, drug use, racial tension and pent-up aggression that plagues Louisiana’s backwater communities. This astonishingly powerful film straddles the tenuous borderline between violence, vulnerability, depravity and tenderness.
