This PaleyImpact program will invite the virtual audience to a special sneak preview of Madness in the Hills, the powerful and emotionally charged documentary film directed by and featuring Rob Lowe and fellow residents of Montecito, California. The film uses harrowing first-person accounts of the deadly mudslides that killed several local residents, and changed this idyllic Southern California town forever. Additionally, Madness in the Hills explores the devastating California wildfires which may ultimately have caused this tragedy, raising larger questions about climate change.
