Hunger Is Real: Voices Of Western North CarolinaDirected by Adams J. Wood
HUNGER IS REAL: VOICES OF WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA is a short documentary film produced by MANNA FoodBank that gives a real look at the state of hunger in Western North Carolina. The film features four food relief organizations who are part of the MANNA Partner Network, a 200+ strong network of nonprofits, schools, churches, and other community-focused groups who are providing food to people in their community across the 16 western-most counties of North Carolina. HUNGER IS REAL introduces viewers to some of the families seeking food assistance in Western North Carolina, and the volunteers who help them.
From hair styling the terminally ill to spotting and reporting wildfires in the Moshannon Forest, the characters in this collection of documentary short films give us a peak into their extraordinarily ordinary lives.
