"Nashville Rises" is a short film documentary narrated by Academy Award Winner, Billy Bob Thornton.
Nashville, TN - Skydive Films, in association with Lavorsia Pictures, and IGBA Productions present NASHVILLE RISES, a new short film documentary narrated by Academy Award Winner, Billy Bob Thornton.
Devastation, hopelessness, confusion, misery. These are some of the emotions people go through when affected by a natural disaster. On May 1st and 2nd, 2010, the citizens of Nashville, TN tested these emotions. Also known as the 1000 year flood, this disaster is the worst in Tennessee history, with over 2 billion in damages. Historic landmarks such as the Opry House and the Opryland Hotel were inundated in water.
Even going through the worst natural disaster in TN history, this didn't stop the citizens from rising up. This is the story about the power of the human spirit, and how neighbor helped neighbor to overcome this tragedy.
Our goal with this film is to raise awareness and educate people about this disaster. It was not covered too much in the national media, and that is the purpose of this project.
We are raising funds to get the film in film festivals across the globe. The money raised will be used towards film festival fees, press kits, postage, DVDs, post cards, posters, and travel expenses.
