Madison Hill

Madison was born in Texas and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. She received her undergraduate degree in Cinema Studies from Virginia Tech where she became involved in environmental grassroots organizing and discovered the need for documentary filmmaking in grassroots resistance. In 2018, she completed her first documentary Resistance in the Valley which followed anti-pipeline activism in Appalachia as students and local communities combated the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline. Madison has since been living in Florence, Italy and is working in the field of emerging media and installation art. Through her work in environmental filmmaking and emerging media, she seeks a new way to document the present devastating effects of climate change on rural and impoverished communities.
