– Ann Hodges: The Woman That Was Hit By A Meteorite | 2020
In 1954, an Alabama woman named Ann Hodges was hit by a meteorite that crashed through the roof of her home. For years, this was the only documented case of an extra-terrestrial object injuring a human being. Despite turning Ms. Hodges into an overnight celebrity, the bizarre event marked the beginning of her tragic demise. With this short documentary film, I wanted to tell the incredible but sad story of Ann Hodges and simultaneously reflect on my passion for low budget Hollywood science fiction films. I hope my film gives some recognition to the late Ann Hodges, whose short life was as wondrous as it was tragic. Struck By A Rock From Space showcases the gritty way in which humankind preserves history and violence through photographs while functioning as a homage to the incredible sci-fi films that dominated box offices during the 1950’s. The film is part of the collections of the Alabama Museum of Natural History.
