A FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY ON YOUTH IN RURAL AMERICA
RAISING BERTIE is the coming-of-age tale of three young black men in rural Bertie County, North Carolina.
Filmed over six years, this powerful and starkly poetic verité film weaves these young men’s stories together as they navigate unemployment, grief, violence, first love, fatherhood and estrangement from family members and mentors, all while trying to define their identities as adults.
The evocative result is an experience that encourages us to recognize the value in lives and communities all too often ignored by the mainstream."
"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things."
