Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
"Hellp" follows an eclectic group of characters whose goal is to stabilize and rebuild a better city out of the rubble left by Hurricane Katrina. The residents interviewed tell story's of a violent police force, lack of outreach from Red Cross, gentrification, an apathetic government and a poorly organized FEMA. To overcome these hurdles, a group of collectives dubbed, "Common Ground" forms to provide immediate and free shelter, food, legal assistance and a medical clinic. This documentary challenges the viewer to see the social injustice and lack of government effectiveness in modern day America and offers an age-old example to remedy the problem. Written by
It's a very moving piece and deserves to be credited for what it is; An amazing documentary.
I've seen documentaries on New Orleans by Big ass companies working for Television stations but none were as good as this. This movie is heart-warming and I loved it (in a way that you can love a very,very sad story)
I can't wait to see more from you guys!
