“The Holly” Wins Top Investigative Prize

THE HOLLY has been named the Winner of the 2023 IRE (investigative Reporters and Editors) Award for Best Documentary!

From the Judges:

“This documentary provided a raw, rare window into the politics of gang-controlled neighborhoods. The filmmaker’s ability to build trust with reluctant or fearful sources so viewers could hear their insight was a home run. It was old-school street reporting at its best. Judges noted that “The Holly” avoided simplifying the roots of violent crime into good character versus bad character categories. It was well-shot, well-told and memorable.”

TO WATCH THE FILM:  The film is currently streaming on Amazon Prime and Apple Plus.
