Willy Bearden & George Larrimore | The Rolling Fork Tornado of 2023 Docuseries
Filmmakers Willy Bearden, and George Larrimore join me today to discuss their 4-part docuseries: The Rolling Fork Tornado of 2023, premiering on MPBTV this Thursday at 7 p.m. In the film, Director Willy Bearden returns to his hometown of Rolling Fork, to document the destruction from the March 24th tornado. Damage was catastrophic, fourteen died and hundreds had to find shelter elsewhere. Then neighbors and volunteers began to come together to help Rolling Fork rise from the rubble. It’s a story of terror, struggle and of unlikely heroes. This is Now You’re Taking on MPB Think Radio.
