Cotton Clouds

United States, 2019 (English)
22m 43s

In 1912 Roanoke, Virginia, a young girl struggles to help provide for her family by working in the exhausting conditions of a cotton mill while still holding to the optimism of childhood. This film is inspired by the photography of Lewis Hine, who documented child workers that had become the exploited, cheap laborers upon which America depended.
