This Side of the River



In 1999, small and relatively unknown Princeville, North Carolina made national headlines when engulfed by the flood waters of Hurricane Floyd. Now This Side of The River brings to the surface a movie re-telling of the undocumented page of our American story that lay beneath those floodwaters for eleven days and the heart-wrenching decision Princeville faced to rebuild their home or move. Through intimate interviews, inspiring local blues and gospel, and a vivid visual dialogue with the land, "This Side.." captures a generously open tour given by the people of Princeville through the timeline of the first incorporated all-Black American town. Settled by freed slaves in 1865 and incorporated in 1885, Princeville, NC is the oldest town in the United States founded entirely by African Americans. By Ryan Rowe and Drew Grimes
