Video: The Curse and the Jubilee

.

Directed by Ivete Lucas and Otis Lee, The Curse and the Jubilee is an intimate, arresting portrait of the cursed Appalachian mining town of Ivanhoe, Virginia. The film captures the town as it prepares for the annual Jubilee, a wild 4th of July celebration where families and neighbors let loose and triumph over daily hardships, industrial abandonment, and race.
