On May 22nd, 2011, Joplin, MO was hit by an EF5 tornado killing 160 people and destroying over 2,000 homes, hundreds of businesses and the local schools. It was one of the deadliest and most destructive tornadoes in history.
In the days following the natural disaster, a woman started collecting photos that were found in the rubble. Abi Almandinger is now on a mission to return thousands of displaced photos to their rightful owners. Los Angeles based filmmaker, Erica Tremblay, returned to her hometown to document five of these families. She found an unconventional story on life, death, love, heroism and the human spirit.
It Came From Above, has concluded principal photography and needs to raise money for all post-production costs including editing, audio, film development and music. We need at least $8,000 pledged to complete the film. Please consider a donation to help us tell these remarkable and beautiful stories. Every dollar helps.
