Written by the two filmmakers, the story begins one evening, during a full moon, when 19-year-old Teddy who works in a massage parlour is scratched by a mysterious creature... Produced by Baxter Films, and Les Films Velvet, the feature film is sold by WTFilms and will be distributed in France by The Jokers Films as of 13 January.
Awarded the Cannes 2020 ACID label, documentary The Last Hillbilly plunges the viewer into eastern Kentucky, the poorest region in the US, which is home to the folk known as "Hillbillies". Through the words of one of them, the film collects precious thoughts which stand as the last remnants of a dying community. This debut feature film by Diane Sara Bouzgarrou and Thomas Jenkoe was produced by Marseille-based firm Films de Force Majeure in co-production with Qatar. Sold worldwide by The Party Film Sales, The Last Hillbilly will be released in French cinemas on 2 December, courtesy of New Story.
