‘Hollow’, or how crowd-sourced storytelling celebrates local change

Documentary maker Elaine McMillion made a splendid interactive documentary about the brain drain of McDowell County, West Virginia and how its people deal with this and other hardships. Thanks to a Kickstarter campaign and the Tribeca Film Institute’s New Media Fund , she helped locals to tell their own story in ‘Hollow’. Take a look and take your time, because it’s a long ride.
