Chevy in the Hole (2022)
"Chevy in the Hole is undoubtedly a Flint love story, but only for those willing to acknowledge love for what it is: an act of endurance that's often painful, sometimes destructive, and absolutely necessary for survival. Like the city itself, August and Monae struggle to reconcile what they've inherited with what they are, and Kelsey Ronan has the grace to make us understand their fumbles and believe in their restoration."
