DVD, Mission Appalachia: The Story of Red Bird – 2nd Edition
Deep within the forests of eastern Kentucky is a mission community of refuge and hope. The mountain people refer to it simply, and affectionately, as “Red Bird.” This mission has been in operation for nearly one-hundred years. The scattered populations and cultural uniqueness make it difficult for service organizations to operate in this rugged, unforgiving land. But Red Bird has worked exclusively in this area since the 1920’s.
This 65 minute color documentary follows very personal stories of hope. The filmmaker was granted unprecedented access into the private, symbiotic relationship between Red Bird and the mountain people it serves. The result is a story of amazing faith and humbling compassion set in a backdrop of awe-inspiring beauty.
