Appalachia is an area that is often misrepresented and underrepresented in film. As filmmakers from the region, we think it is important that the stories, history, and folklore of Appalachia are utilized and preserved. Additionally, we strive to bring the problems plaguing modern Appalachia to light, promoting positive action in order to better the region.
The Search does just that. While the story is fictional, it captures the real problems plaguing small-town America. By utilizing genuine locations from Newport, TN (the town in which the film is set), we hope to display an accurate portrait of small-town Appalachia.
While all the cast and crew are volunteering their time and efforts and property owners are providing locations free of charge, some money is still needed.
The money raised for this film will be used for:
It is our deepest desire to tell this story and we hope you will join us in that effort.
