Adam Meeks - Blurring lines between fiction & reality

Union County by director Adam Meeks is a truthful and gentle depiction of a young man in rural Ohio, trying to make a living and getting back together with his ex-girlfriend while simultaneously participating in a court-ordered drug rehab program to stay out of jail.

Most of the additional cast in Union County were real people and scenes were filmed while events like drug court sessions actually happened, with the lead actor placed in between everybody else. We watched Union County and talked to Adam for Short Talks at Berlinale 2020. His film was also screened at Palm Springs International Short Fest as well as the Champs-Élysées Film Festival and right now you can watch it for free online on his website.
