The Ballad of Holland Island House
The Ballad of Holland Island House has been nominated for a Student Academy Award! Watch a sneak peek here, and come back in January, 2016, to see the full film.
Animator Lynn Tomlinson tells the true story of the last house on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay. Told from the house’s point of view, this film is a soulful and haunting view of the impact of sea-level rise.
Oscar-nominated documentarians Tia Lessin and Carl Deal (Trouble the Water) describe it as a “totally mesmerizing, thoughtful and immersive piece.”
