Closed CaptionedKentucky Programming Stranger with a Camera #209 [TV-G]
In 1967, Canadian filmmaker Hugh O'Connor visited the mountains of central Appalachia to document poverty. A local landlord who resented the presence of filmmakers on his property shot and killed O'Connor, in part because of his anger over the media images of Appalachia that had become icons in the nation's War on Poverty. Filmmaker Elizabeth Barret, a native of Appalachia, uses O'Connor's death as a lens to explore the complex relationship between those who make films to promote social change and the people whose lives are represented in such media productions.

The Appalachian group To Save the Land and People used every means possible—from legal petitions and local ordinances to guns and dynamite—to fight the abuses.
