For Kentucky, 2020 was an especially difficult year. The Covid-19 crisis compounded with the aftermath of Breonna Taylor’s murder highlighted systemic racial issues in a state that has suffered from stark inequality for decades. As one of the poorest states in the nation, Kentucky has some of the worst access in the U.S. to education, healthcare, and clean drinking water. It’s ironic that a state with some of the most disenfranchised people is represented by one of the most powerful politicians in the country: Mitch McConnell. For years, people across Kentucky have felt that McConnell is not connected with the struggles of the communities he represents. Seizing an opportunity to step up and advocate for his people, Democratic candidate Charles Booker decided to run for Senate, taking on the establishment-endorsed Amy McGrath in the 2020 election. A captivating documentary of his incredible journey against the odds, FROM THE HOOD TO THE HOLLER follows Booker as he works to unite people of all colors across Kentucky, while fighting against big money in politics, voter suppression, and systemic corruption in a historically deeply red state. —G.S.
